Judging a book without reading the fine lines is like judging yourself, with lines that are too fine to be read. A book should not be judged by its appearance or colour. It should be read first, page by page, so that you are able to understand the words of each page and the story it tells along the way. To judge and not listen is to judge and not understand the words. This is like judging yourself, without stopping to think, ‘I could be wrong.’ Each life has a book, and each book has a story. We are all different. Life Couture: one life, one creation; unique, and sometimes hard to sew.

How did a big-game fishing trip rudely interrupted by sharks inspire one of the key scenes in Hemingway's The Old Man and the Sea? How did Robert Louis Stevenson's cruise to the cannibal-infested South Sea islands prove instrumental in his writing of The Beach of Falesa and The Ebb Tide? How did Masefield survive Cape Horn and a near-nervous breakdown to write Sea Fever? The waters of this world have swirled through storytelling ever since the Celts spun the tale of Beowulf and Homer narrated The Odyssey. This enthralling book takes us on a tour of the most dangerous, exciting and often eccentric escapades of literature's sailing stars, and how these true stories inspired and informed their best-loved works. Arthur Ransome, Erskine Childers, Jack London and many others are featured as we find out how extraordinary fact fed into unforgettable fiction.
