The best-selling author of Salt and Cod turns his attention to the history of Gloucester, America’s oldest seaport, in The Last Fish Tale: The Fate of the Atlantic and Survival in Gloucester, America’s Oldest Fishing Port and Most Original Town. Kurlansky salts his rich account of the area with fish tales, Gloucester stories, colorful characters and local recipes that read like a page-turner while also taking a discerning look at the struggle between past and the present, the fate of the Atlantic and a town, and the livelihoods that hang in the balance.
