Skulls & Bones: A Novella
Fourteen Letters from a Sailor at the End of the World
This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
At the edge of the world, an ocean away, a sailor named Martel has retired to land. He clings to his most valued possession—a series of letters written to his granddaughter, whom he lost contact with long ago. Telling of their ancestral past, his life at sea, and the choices upon which their lives have been built, Martel’s letters illuminate the power of stories passed down through generations—stories that changed over time, and that ruptured their family narrative, tearing them all apart.
A multimedia project conceived by acclaimed Canadian artist and musician Jay Malinowski, this special enhanced edition of Skulls & Bones contains more than one hundred beautifully rendered pen and ink illustrations, and fourteen original songs. It is a fascinating and telling portrait of a sailor atoning for his past, uncovering truth, and finding hope in the future.
