So anybody reading this should be aware that Jackie's book is available from Amazon AND IF YOU ENJOY IT TAKE A FEW MINUTES TO GIVE IT A POSITIVE REVIEW on Amazon. Since I am interviewed in your book and Lee Shore Blues is mentioned a couple of times I thought it might be disingenuous for me to review your book but I hope others here will take a minute. It's expensive to produce a book and a good review definitely helps recover costs.
    Thank you, Peter. I hope no one gives me a review similar to the one mentioned on the back of your book: "Don't ever touch me there again!" and other equally hilarious ones.

    Jackie, thank you so much for that amazing gift in our bag, it was a highlight of my return trip. I don't think I put it down for more than 10 minutes. My only gripe is that I finished it in less than a day..... looking forward to the double volume. I knew most of the names but not the stories and after reading it I'm I awe with the company I somehow stumbled into. I got the weirdo part down, still working on the sailing side of things!

    Peter, yours was the first book I packed. Forget where I got turned onto it and it didn't disappoint. A classic no doubt. Hilarious. Thank you.

    Thanks for your kind words Brett. I was very lucky that Lee Shore Blues became something of an instant cult classic when I published it. It was unfortunate that apparently that particular cult only had eight members.

    OK, well now I got to buy Lee Shore Blues. I have never joined a cult but I say if you're gonna join a cult, join an exclusive one. That way you can complain to the management if things get wacky.

    As one of the eight, I'll say Lee Shore Blues is a good read and over way too quickly.

    As another of the eight, I savored it until ... damn! It was all over! Peter is very funny. I understand that he is writing another book. Certainly I'll buy that one, too.
