March 15, 2024 (PRLEAP.COM) Entertainment News
At the Bottom of the Ocean, a new book by Christopher Hall, has been released by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc.

At the Bottom of the Ocean follows the fictional character Smokes Ships as he narrates poems about being unable to find love. The place is Jade Marks, a secret town in North America, and the time is the year 2023. Smokes cannot find love throughout the latter part of his life, and these poems are to create an ethereal world of images and ideas through the use of war imagery, sailing references, airplanes, and the events of the made-up country Forsythelus.

Written to a broad audience that will feel the very emotional and scary world of Smokes' life appear before them, At the Bottom of the Ocean showcases the trials of men and love, and how the power of war, sailing, and tragedy can be anyone's clue as to why this happens to people, and what it means to Smokes.
