The Practical Navigator by Chris Crowley
A great novel for the nautically inclined fiction reader, by our friend Chris Crowley.
Membership in the Great Arcadia, an exclusive East Coast yacht club, is pretty much limited to the rich and powerful in 1980s business, finance, and politics. But the sexually charged murder of Greek billionaire George Minot during their annual regatta off the coast of Maine opens a door into a secret world of addictive sexuality and excess beneath the starched sheets of the East Coast establishment.
Gay Talese calls it "superb". We agree.
