A seafaring tale soaked in surrealism — the English-language graphic novel debut of Danish cartoonist Villadsen.

A fisherman traversing the ocean is used to danger and surprise, but what happens when he pulls up his net and catches a newborn baby and a talking fish? Thus begins a story full of provocative symbolism and a madness that doesn’t just bubble beneath the surface of the water, but drenches the sailor—and reader—like a tidal wave. Danish cartoonist Rikke Villadsen makes her English-language debut with this seafaring tale soaked in surrealism that is ultimately about the end of one life, the beginning of another, and a man, literally and figuratively, lost at sea.
