Whether or not they're liars, all fishermen do tell stories. In her third memoir, this real-life fisherman weaves dozens of tales into a narrative held together by an afternoon in a waterfront bar. The author reads her own work in much the same tone that she originally told her stories in that bar, and relates the experiences of other fishermen in similar spirit. Though not a trained performer, Greenlaw brings an authenticity and sincerity to her work that no outsider could convey. Her understated humor and open self-deprecation inspire laughter and reflection, often simultaneously. Although all these stories relate to fishing or the sea, their telling calls to mind parallel events in our own lives. R.P.L. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 04]
