AWAKE NOW, SAILOR, A NOVEL

 

Cass Loyola, a Cuban merchant seaman, abandons the ocean seas to pursue literature and a better life at a button-down college in New York City. As he struggles to adjust to his new life, he is haunted by the woman he left behind in Cardiff—a flame-haired Wiccan priestess who makes books with inks made from flowers and seashells.

As he journeys from literary readings and champagne museum soirees in Manhattan to the soft beds of women in the social register, he becomes less the social brute, but comes to question his adopted values and fears the loss of his soul, whose outline is drawn with inks made of flowers and seashells.
