And then a tidal wave, which destroys half the atoll, provides a chance of escape. A wrecked motor launch that Fenn is able to repair is washed up on shore. he names his makeshift craftProvidence and sets off across the Indian Ocean. This is one of the most unusual books to appear in a long time. The two elements, action and soliloquy, are counterpointed in a remarkable way, and the result is a book of originality and force.
