“Fan-Tan is the kind of high-seas extravaganza nobody writes anymore . . . . A ripping yarn, an old-fashioned potboiler with something for everyone.” –The New York Times Book Review
“An exceedingly strange, high-stepping, low-stooping tale.” –The Washington Post Book World
“Fan-Tan is indeed an outrageous sea-story, with babes and pirates, drink and sex. It has an undeniable charm. . . . Students of film, lovers of Brando, or those with a hankering for another tale of avarice and deceit on the high seas will want to have a look.” –The Houston Chronicle
