The true colour of the sea
The true colour of the sea
Drewe, Robert, 1943-2018
Books
Witty, clever, ever touching and always inventive, the eleven stories in The True Colour of the Sea take us to many varied coasts - whether a tense Christmas holiday apartment overlooking the Indian Ocean or the shabby glamour of a Cuban resort hotel. Robert Drewe makes a gift of stories that tackle the big themes of life.
