There is the weather, the constant danger of mechanical failure, the perils of controlling five sleep , women , and booze deprived young fishermen in close quarters, not to mention the threat of a bad fishing run If we don t catch fish, we don t get paid, period In short, there is no labor union Greenlaw s straightforward, uncluttered prose underscores the qualities that make her a good captain, regardless of gender fairness, physical and mental endurance, obsessive attention to detail But, ultimately, Greenlaw proves that the love of fishing in all of its grueling, isolating, suspenseful glory is a matter of the heart and blood, not the mind I knew that the ocean had stories to tell me, all I needed to do was listen Svenja SoldovieriShe s smart, hard working and good at what she does, though sometimes she wishes she had a life Greenlaw is captain of the Hannah Boden, sister ship to the Andrea Gail, the sword fishing boat whose disappearance was described with agonizing verisimilitude in Sebastian Junger s bestseller, The Perfect Storm Greenlaw tells a comparatively quotidian tale, the true story of a real, and typical, sword fishing trip, from leaving the dock to returning Not trying to compete with Junger s operatic tale of death on the high seas, Greenlaw deals with stormy personalities rather than with bad weather She rounds out the story with her gimlet eyed description of a captain s biggest headache after nature itself the crew Racism, drug use, baffling illnesses these are all elements of a 30 day journey for six people crammed aboard a 100 ft boat designed less for human comfort than to carry the 50,000 pounds or of fish it will eventually take on But Greenlaw picks her sailors carefully and, through her own example, inspires a fierce loyalty among the menAsuch as the one who extracted his own abscessed tooth rather than return to shore In my experience, she notes, very few men are willing to pull their own teeth Greenlaw s narrative should foster an abiding respect in anyone who has tossed a swordfish steak on the grill, and it is certain to induce jaw dropping admiration among personnel managers everywhere Photos not seen by PW Copyright 1999 Reed Business Information, Inc.
