Editorial Reviews

Review

Powell's writing is graphic, startling in its clarity, as Paul alternates between desire to serve God and his physical needs. --Spindrift Two, Summer 1994

This Seething Ocean, That Damned Eagle is a remarkable first work from someone who promises to be one of the more 'important up and comers' on the literary scene. The story compels readers, written with stark, clean, and matter-of-fact, almost existential prose. An important work from an author to watch. --Samantha Amara, author of Chopsticks and French Fries

By Socrates Litsios on May 5, 2003
Format: Paperback
This short book tells the story of a young man, Paul Matthew Taylor, whose drive to find God at the age of 17 blinds him to what a year later he realizes is the most important thing in life, namely, love. The crisis generated by his determination to force God upon his first girl friend, Julie, leads him to discover Seattle, alcohol, drugs, sex, a girl who wears a nose ring and boys who wear earrings. His earlier, secluded life, as an only child living in a Northwestern Washington town, dominated by the presence of the sea (seething ocean) and the beauty of nature (that damned eagle), seems to have left him poorly prepared for his new life. But slowly and resolutely, with a determination that reflects an inner strength that he probably is unaware of himself, he emerges a more mature and sensible human being. I found his transformation to be believable and a good read. A book to be recommended.

Format: Paperback
Paul is the adolescent male whose hermetical existence--no drugs, no sex, and a lot of philosophical thought on God--leaves him unprepared for the real world. A loner all his life, a little love and tragedy prick his curiosity and leave him hungry for meaning. We start with a kid who has never watched television, never had a kiss, never stepped outside his small Washington state town, and we end with a kid who, through courage and introspection, discovers himself, his desires, and his place in the world. In Paul's narrative we find frank, inquisitive prose that leaves the reader remembering his own simple yet gut-wrenching coming-of-age years. Caleb Powell has written our past as if we were looking at it for the first time. And, like all first times, our stomachs quiver with each page.

Format: Paperback
Cabel Powell vividly portrays the struggles of an introspective loner, Paul Taylor, who searches for meaning and answers in his journey into early adulthood. It's a refreshing story in that it refuses to follow the typical "coming of age" formula. Instead of finding answers, the endearing Taylor will eventually confront his own shortcomings and accept the idea that having all of the answers is less important than appreciating the world as it is. The story is thought provoking and entertaining and it's the only book I've read cover to cover in one sitting.
