    "Atlantic Threshold" This book is the sign of new times. Atlantic Threshold applies the most revolutionary elements of 20th century thought to the tale of a courageous woman's solo trans-Atlantic journey. Told in Melvillian manner, the smell of the deck as the sun rises, the sound a flying fish makes in the air, and the smell of coffee thrashed from her hands during a rogue wave are all characteristic details that swell from the tip of Shirley Griffin's pen. Griffin reclaims high modernism as a vehicle for her own humble thoughts. After hippies and false cultural prophets have flown the coup, leaving humanity to grapple with an inhumane post-industrialized global unease, this lone woman's voice sings lucidity. On a voyage of self-exploration, she muses painstakingly on the nature of existence, and the will it requires to take charge of one's destiny. Without doubt, this book will be a great success once the young and hopeful have it in their hands. A success not only for...
