Great Yacht Race PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Great Yacht Race free pdf Murders, scandals, and pursuit of forbidden pleasures may help to while the time away, but for Montego Bay's elite in the 1950s nothing is as important as the annual yacht race. Is the lecherous, braggadocio Fritzie going to win again? Winkler interweaves the lives of five Montegonians: Fitzpatrick the barrister, Angwin the magistrate, O'Hara the hotelier, Biddle the reporter -- all of whom will eventually compete in the race -- and Father Huck, the American priest who ministers over them and tries his best to understand them, while battling with his own conflicts. In so doing Winkler provides us with affectionately satirical, hilarious view of a paranoid, hypocritical and eccentric colonialist society, during the twilight of their influence.
