Wyl Menmuir - The Draw of the Sea

In thirteen interlinked chapters, The Draw of the Sea portrays the lives of fishermen, surfers, sailors, conservationists, freedivers, swimmers and artists whose lives revolve around the coasts of Cornwall and the Isle of Scilly. In the specifics of these livelihoods and their rich histories and traditions, Menmuir captures the universal human connection to the sea. The ocean fires our imagination, provides joy, solace and play but also wields immense destructive power. Into this seductive tapestry, Wyl reveals the grief that underpinned his settling in Cornwall and how living by the sea has consoled and restored his family.

Funny and uplifting, personal and profound, The Draw of the Sea will delight anyone familiar with the intimate and powerful pull of the sea. It’s the must-read of summer 2022. Wyl will be in conversation with the bookshop's Rachael Howorth
