ID: 9780307422514

A Walk Through Nantucket Frank Conroy first visited Nantucket with a gang of college friends in 1955. They came on a whim, and for Conroy it was the beginning of a lifelong love affair with this `small, relaxed oasis in the ocean.` This book, part travel diary, part memoir, is a hauntingly evocative and personal journey through Nantucket: its sweeping dunes, rugged moors, remote beaches, secret fishing spots, and hidden forests and cranberry bogs. Admirers of Conroy’ s classic and acclaimed memoir Stop-Time will again delight in what James Atlas, writing in the New York Times, called his `genius for close observation.` In Time and Tide, Conroy recounts the island’ s history from the glory days of the whaling boom to the present, when tourism dominates. He vividly evokes the clash of cultures between the working class and the super-rich, with the fragile ecology of the island always in the balance. But most fascinating of all, he tells his own story--of playing jazz piano in the island’ s bars of raising a barn in the early `60s with the help of a bunch of hippie carpenters of leasing an old, failed bar with two island pals and turning it into the Roadhouse, a club `that was to be ours, the year-rounders, and to hell with the summer people.` There’ s a marvelous story of his first golf game, played on an ancient nine-hole course with two friends, a part-time sommelier and a builder from the South who invented the one-handed pepper mill. This is a book that revels in friendship, music, history, and the gorgeous landscape of a unique American place, and is a wonderful work by one of our greatest contemporary writers.
