New York: Knopf, 2019. Nathaniel Russell. First edition. Hardcover. "When the decorated captain of a great ship, the Glory, descends the gangplank for the final time, a new leader, a man with a yellow feather in his hair, steps forward. Though he has no experience, no knowledge of nautical navigation or maritime law, though he is loud, clownish, foul, and has often remarked he doesn't much like boats, he solemnly swears to shake things up. Together with his band of petty thieves and confidence men known as the Upskirt Boys, the Captain thrills his passengers, writing his dreams and notions on the cafeteria wipe-away board, boasting of his exemplary anatomy, devouring thousands of paper-wrapped cheese-burgers and tossing overboard anyone who displeases him. Until one day a famous pirate, long feared by passengers of the Glory but revered by the Captain for his handsome looks while riding a horse bare-chested, appears on the horizon..." 114 pages.
