As alluring as The Love-Artist, a contemporary tale of love and ambition, betrayal and revenge, set in two gloriously watery cities In a damp Venetian palace, Oswaldo contemplates the ravages of time to his body and his beloved city, and dreams up a way to hold mortality at bay. In New York, Lach steps out into the crisp, clear night to savor his new freedom, having just dropped Vera to join his new love, Francesca, in Venice. In rainy London, Max packs for a precipitous move to New Orleans, in pursuit of Lucinde, a woman he barely knows. From New Orleans, Lucinde flies to the aid and comfort of Vera, who, betrayal or no, has accepted a grant to go paint in . . . Venice. And elsewhere in the Crescent City, Anton, leaving to seek his big break in that other renowned city of water—Venice, of course—sketches a good-bye upon the slumbering body of his wife, Josephine. With wit, sympathy, and surpassing deftness, Jane Alison choreographs an intricate minuet among these characters, whom love and loneliness, aspiration and desperation, have drawn to two famously romantic, venal, and elusive cities of water.

At Sea is a book of poetic meditations on the Psalms written while standing watch in the darkness before dawn in intercession for Israel and her neighbors and in preparation for sailing on a small vessel on the authors twenty-third trip to “the land” of God’s promises. At Sea was finished on Mother’s Day, 2010 because Israel, that tiny “island” in the midst of “roaring seas,” birthed both Scripture and Messiah, the Word-made-flesh and she, as God’s wife, is the mother of our faith. “Do not ask for whom the bell tolls, it tolls for thee.” (John Donne)
