After six years of classic education at England's Blackfriars' Dominican boarding school for boys, with its mix of fun and misery, he spent "twenty-two years of adventure while sailing as mate and master."
Gradually drifting into alcohol addiction, he withdrew into his own private hell, ending his drinking days on the streets of San Francisco. Now sober for twenty years, Peter Wright says, "Writing this book evened out the playing field."
Wright's writing voice tastes of British farce with gentle glances along the shoulder and tight little smiles as he presents the boy and man that he was and became. The writing is elegantly clear and simple, making for a Thumping Good Read.
