‘The Swordfish and the Star: Life on Cornwall’s Most Treacherous Stretch of Coast’

Friday 22nd July 3pm

The Penwith Peninsula in Cornwall is where the land ends.  In this new book Gavin Knight takes us right into this huddle of grey roofs at the edge of the sea.  He catches the stories of a whole community, but especially those still working this last frontier: the Cornish fishermen.  Based on immersive research and rich with the voices of a cast of remarkable characters, this is an eye-opening, dramatic, poignant account of life on this dangerous coast.
