Knickers ahoy!*

The Guardian Review consistently attracts articles by quality writers and today’s edition has a double review by Joseph O’Connor of two books relating to the Master and Commander of high-seas’ literature, Patrick O’Brian (born Patrick Russ). First on the captain’s table is The Final Unfinished Voyage of Jack Aubrey, a “clutch of sketchy pages” that O’Brian completists will snap up and, for dessert, a biography by the author’s stepson Nikolai Tolstoy.
