Small Craft Warning
– June 22, 2013
Small Craft Warning is an adventure story in the true sense of the word, a thriller played out in the middle of an innocent Swedish summer. Spy planes from the USA have increased their activity near Swedish borders. What is really going on out at Gotska Sand Island? With what right can the Defense Department together with the Environmental Protection Agency close down a national park? What sort of beautiful body was both found and not found on Norsta Aura? Why do the Commander-in-Chief and the Head of the Secret Service visit the Prime Minister’s residence on Fårö? “It is a self evident human right to be inquisitive, a duty too to delve into the fantastic, and report about it,” claims Jason Vråk who like a modern pirate in the Baltic in his Argo, an orange colored Finn dinghy, kicks up a great deal of trouble of various sorts for the powers that be. Small Craft Warning is a novel about sensory pleasure and love, about the mystique and madness of summer, about evil, wet death. It is an unusually exciting and funny book, which can be read as an allegory with many hidden meanings too. The word adventure also stands for folk-tale, legend, myth. Who is Medea with the golden hair actually; which dark forces does the bird major represent? Christian Stannow has published novels and poetry collections, recently Strödda dikter. Ö, älskog, medelhav, reseräkning, curriculum vitae samt strand (Scattered poems. Islands, lovemaking, the mediterranean, travel accounts, curriculum vitae as well as shores). Atlantis, 2009.
