About the Author: Nicholas Monsarrat

Born on Rodney Street in Liverpool, Monsarrat was educated at Winchester and Trinity College, Cambridge He intended to practise law The law failed to inspire him, however, and he turned instead to writing, moving to London and supporting himself as a freelance writer for newspapers while writing four novels and a play in the space of five years 1934 1939 He later commented in his autobiography that the 1931 Invergordon Naval Mutiny influenced his interest in politics and social and economic issues after college.Though a pacifist, Monsarrat served in World War II, first as a member of an ambulance brigade and then as a member of the Royal Naval Volunteer Reserve RNVR His lifelong love of sailing made him a capable naval officer, and he served with distinction in a series of small warships assigned to escort convoys and protect them from enemy attack Monsarrat ended the war as commander of a frigate, and drew on his wartime experience in his postwar sea stories During his wartime service, Monsarrat claimed to have seen the ghost ship Flying Dutchman while sailing the Pacific, near the location where the young King George V had seen her in 1881.Resigning his wartime commission in 1946, Monsarrat entered the diplomatic service He was posted at first to Johannesburg, South Africa and then, in 1953, to Ottawa, Canada He turned to writing full time in 1959, settling first on Guernsey, in the Channel Islands, and later on the Mediterranean island of Gozo Malta.Monsarrat s first three novels, published in 1934 1937 and now out of print, were realistic treatments of modern social problems informed by his leftist politics His fourth novel and first major work, This Is The Schoolroom, took a different approach The story of a young, idealistic, aspiring writer coming to grips with the real world for the first time, it is at least partly autobiographical The Cruel Sea 1951 , Monsarrat s first postwar novel, is widely regarded as his finest work, and is the only one of his novels that is still widely read Based on his own wartime service, it followed the young naval officer Keith Lockhart through a series of postings in corvettes and frigates It was one of the first novels to depict life aboard the vital, but unglamorous, small ships of World War II ships for which the sea was as much a threat as the Germans Monsarrat s short story collections H.M.S Marlborough Will Enter Harbour 1949 , and The Ship That Died of Shame 1959 mined the same literary vein, and gained popularity by association with The Cruel Sea.The similar Three Corvettes 1945 and 1953 comprising H.M Corvette set aboard a Flower class corvette in the North Atlantic , East Coast Corvette as First Lieutenant of HMS Guillemot and Corvette Command as Commanding Officer of HMS Shearwater is actually an anthology of three true experience stories he published during the war years and shows appropriate care for what the Censor might say Thus Guillemot appears under the pseudonym Dipper and Shearwater under the pseudonym Winger in the book H.M Frigate is similar but deals with his time in command of two frigates His use of the name Dipper could allude to his formative years when summer holidays were spent with his family at Trearddur Bay They were members of the famous sailing club based there, and he recounted much of this part of his life in a book My brother Denys Denys Monserrat was killed in Egypt during the middle part of the war whilst his brother was serving with the Royal Navy Another tale recounts his bringing his ship into Trearddur Bay during the war for old times sake.Monsarrat sfamous novels, notably The Tribe That Lost Its Head 1956 and its sequel Richer Than All His Tribe 1968 , drew on his experience in the diplomatic service and make important reference to the colonial experience of Britain in Africa.

    I loved this wee read Breezy, fun, witty and positive Montsarrat clearly loved his road trip across Canada but was certainly never going to produce a weighty tome or go into any deep sociology or psychology of places in Canada What you get instead is a delightful account of the best anecdotes and first impressions across his trip and a hunger to read and seeof Canada.

    Love this dude but this book was exactly what I thought it was.Seemslike a journalism assignment that was just a little forced I feel like he wanted to make the trip, got suckered into working during the trip, and just put this together to appease his Canadian fans and publishers.Great writer, not so great book.
