Pirate Talk or Mermalade: Scientific Advice and Practical Ideas
Pursued by a mermaid, two boys talk their way into pirating and end up in the Arctic where a secret unhinges them both. Disabled piecemeal, harassed by a parrot, marooned on a tree-challenged island, posing as Pilgrims, scrimshawing and singing their way out of prison, the spunky pirates of "Pirate Talk or Mermalade" defy and indeed eliminate all description: it's a novel in voices.
The many faces of Terese Svoboda's luminous writing include eleven books of poetry, fiction, translation, and over one hundred short stories. "Trailer Girl and Other Stories," her third novel, was reissued in paperback last fall.
