Worse Things Happen at Sea
Tales of Life, Love, Family and the Everyday Beauty in Between
by William McInnes & Sarah Watt (Hachette, 2011)
audiobook read by Clem Fechner (QNS Audio, 2014)
Entwined memoirs with a cumulative focus on family, mortality, embracing life and coping with death. McInnes reaches his conclusions through rambling associative leaps, Watt by more direct reflection. Fechner’s audiobook reading captures the sometimes humorous, always heartfelt tone (but not female voices).
