Theatre of Fish : Travels Through Newfoundland and Labrador Paperback
John Gimlette's travels through this harsh and awesome landscape, the eastern extreme of the Americas, broadly mirrors that of Dr Eliot Curwen, his great-grandfather, who spent a summer there as a doctor in 1893, and who was witness to some of the most beautiful ice and cruelest poverty in the British Empire.
Using Curwen's extraordinarily frank journal, John Gimlette revisits the places his great-grandfather encountered, and along the way explores his own links with this brutal land.
