Lena Lencek and Gideon Bosker, editors of Beach: Stories by the Sand and Sea, return this summer with Sail Away: Stories of Escaping to Sea. In this new collection, Lencek and Bosker gather an assortment of fiction and nonfiction covering the experiences and dreams of those who find refuge at sea. With excerpts from Jules Verne's Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea, Virginia Woolf's To the Lighthouse and David Foster Wallace's A Supposedly Fun Thing I'll Never Do Again, plus stories by Roald Dahl and James Reid Parker, Lencek and Bosker cover the gamut of maritime adventure.
