AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'The boy is lonely following the loss of his father and clings to a fantasy of one day becoming a seal. Are they seals - or only boardriders in wetsuits? Maybe there's a magical distance where things are what you want them to be, not what they are. At least, that's the boy's dream. It's a dream that draws him back and back to the sea, because the sea is the only world that washes them all: the boy, his drowned father, and the newborn seal cub.' (Source: QBD Books)
