There is the Cornwall Lamorna Ash knew as a child – the idyllic, folklore-rich place where she spent her summer holidays. Then there is the messier, harder Cornwall she discovers when, feeling increasingly dislocated in London, she moves to a fishing town near Land’s End.

Before long she finds herself on a week-long trawler trip with a crew of local fishermen, afforded a rare glimpse into their world, their warmth and their humour. She realizes that this proud and compassionate community, sustained and defined by the sea for centuries, is under threat, living in the lengthening shadow cast by globalization.

‘A bracing account of discovery . . . Glistens with deftly told snippets and character-rich stories’ Financial Times
