Quotes & Awards

  • Rough Water is a superb collection of the best writing about men and women against the sea. It’s an exceptionally strong anthology—and a lot of fun to read.”

    Daniel Hays, New York Times bestselling coauthor of My Old Man and the Sea

  • “The exhilaration of danger and survival at sea immediately focuses the listener…Willis, a master anthologist, has selected stories that reflect both literary quality and classic adventure in both fiction and nonfiction…The selection of narrators is equally fine. Prebble, Malcolm and Guidall are masters at their craft. With riveting intensity and subtle drama, listeners are brought through a gale on Shackleton’s Antarctic expedition, witness the sinking of the Titanic, and experience a whale hunt in an open boat…This spectacular program should not be missed.”


  • “Like The Perfect Storm, this collection tells hypnotic tales of mariners battling the remorseless sea.”

    Tim Queeney, editor of Ocean Navigator

  • “An eclectic seabag of yarns for a sailor’s library. True and fictional, famous and little-known, these stories evoke in compelling prose the timeless quest of mariners to survive a sea that is at once savage and majestic.”
