The Art of Coarse Writing
The Art of Coarse Sailing by Michael Green
First published 1962 by Hutchinson & Co.
Illustrated is ninth impression of the First Edition
This is probably my favourite book of the whole series. It is written as the story of a single holiday, rather than a collection of anecdotes. The foreword is in Michael Green’s normal, self-effacing style. His next book was the excellent “Don’t Print My Name Upside Down”. Perhaps if he had called that “The Art of Coarse Journalism” it might have sold more copies.
