London: Weidenfeld & Nicolson. 257 pp. Hardback dustjacket, very good plus condition (in very good plus dustjacket). Novel based on the mutiny on the Bounty that weaves facts with fiction. At dawn on 27 April 1789 Fletcher Christian, master's mate on the HMS Bounty, took a coconut to quench his thirst from the supply on the quarterdeck. But the consequences followed: mutiny; Captain Bligh's navigation 3000 miles across the Pacific in an open boat in violent weather without maps or supplies and with starving men; the colonising of Pitcairn Island; the shipwreck on the Great Barrier Reef of HMS Pandora sent to capture the mutineers; and, two hundred years later, the seduction of the narrator in a rudderless yacht on stormy seas. This singular tale by a Whitbread Prize-winning writer connects the famous mutiny on the Bounty in the Pacific Ocean in 1789 to the plight of the islanders of Pitcairn now. Its conceptual core is chaos theory: how a small chance thing, the taking of a coconut by Fletcher Christian from William Bligh's stores on the ship, had dramatic ramifications that continue today.
