Author: CDR Corwin A. Bell U.S.Navy (ret.)
This collection of previously published essays, stories, and memoirs tells the adventures of CDR Corwin A. Bell, US Navy (ret.), revealing his wit and keen observation. The decorated veteran and Mensa member tells his tales of the high seas on aircraft carriers, his view of the Occupy movement, and his memoirs of college experiences. They are some of his more popular pieces as well as controversial opinions he feels need to be expressed.
The read progresses much like a naval ship out to sea that rises over crests of humor and joy and hits the water in earnest analysis, creating a splash that either refreshes the reader or gets in his eyes. For all its ups and downs, there is no shortage of entertainment, as he takes you from Washington, to Japan, to San Diego, and even into distant history. Bells ocean of knowledge, wit, and observation is deep and wide, and hes a trustworthy captain who will not lead his readers off course . . . at least not any further off than he intends.
Saltiest Sailor & Other Sketches is the perfect mixture of humor and seriousness for those who seek thought-provoking fiction and informed opinions.
