Special Author Talk - Clifton Branch Book Club - Jonah, A Novel of Men and the Sea

Join the Clifton Branch Book Club for the first Book Club gathering of the year, with special guest, Author Howard Butcher! We will be discussing his book, Jonah, A Novel of Men and the Sea.

This event is open to the public at no charge, and no registration is required.

About the Book:

Jonah, an apprentice oil field diver, is partnered with Seed, a parolee from Angola, Louisiana¿s notorious maximum-security prison. The two strangers work in the brutal and exotic offshore world of the Gulf of Mexico. An accident enrages Seed, and his shocking retaliation starts a blood feud with rival crews from across the Gulf. Frightening and dangerous encounters roughnecks and riggers follow, all bent on violent revenge against Jonah¿s dive team. Topside, he must fight to survive the worst that men can do, while undersea he works in a surreal world where every breath can bring death, the night ocean lights up with bioluminescence, and giant predators hunt.
