There's something distinctive and "modern' (in a mid last century way) about stories set with the sea up very close.Perhaps the sea represents the unconscious which its supposed to do in Conrad though there's not much sign of it in the "Mirror of the Sea"!
The first chapter of 'Tender is the Night' and the middle of Salinger's 'A Perfect Day for Bananafish' have this tight focus on people which your story shares.
I'm afraid I recognised myself in the man who was fretting about poor service!
Also is the sound of the sea at the end supposed to suggest "en douleur"?
Is there any way I can send you a cheque for the book without palaver?


Thanks! (tho I'm not sure I thought too much about what the sea represents...)
Happy to take a cheque. Please email badaude-at-gmail-dot-com.
