The sea is damaged, fishermen say. the ocean is empty. The genii have taken the fish elsewhere.
For centuries, fishermen have introduced their pirogues from the Senegalese port of Joal, the place the fish was once so considerable a guy may possibly dip his hand into the grey-green ocean and pull one out as enormous as his thigh. yet in an Atlantic decimated via overfishing and weather swap, the fish are more durable and tougher to discover.
Here, Badkhen discovers, all obstacles are permeable--between land and sea, among fantasy and fact, even among storyteller and tale. Fisherman's Blues immerses us in a group navigating a time of extraordinary environmental, financial, and cultural upheaval with resilience, ingenuity, and wonder.
