AOT #222: Linda Greenlaw Podcasts Seaworthy: A Swordboat Captain Returns to the Sea
Linda Greenlaw hadn’t been bluewater fishing for ten years–not since the events chronicled in the books The Perfect Storm by Sebastian Junger and her memoir The Hungry Ocean–but when her lobster traps aren’t paying off, her truck is on its last gasp, and the bills are piling up, she decides to take a friend up on his offer and captain a boat for a season of swordfishing. Greenlaw discusses her new memoir Seaworthy: A Swordboat Captain Returns to the Sea, which captures the moment-by-moment details of her journey. Greenlaw tells a story about human nature and the nature around us, about learning what can be controlled and when to let fate step in. Seaworthy is a compelling narrative about a person setting her own terms and finding her true self between land and water.
