In the winter of 1836 the Belle of Wilmington is wrecked off Wherrytown. The Captain and his American sailors flirt, drink, brawl, repair the damage to their ship... and inflict fresh damage on the town. Another visitor marooned far from home is Aymer Smith, a man brimming with good intentions both for the Belle's black slave cook Otto and for himself, a virgin and a blunderer in search of a wife.

Amid the haunting, monumental landscape and a wealth of characters that rival Dickens's most enduring creations, the hopes and hazards of the Old World are pitched -- unforgettably -- against the New.

Chosen by Publisher's Weekly as one of the best books of 1995, Signals of Distress, Jim Crace's fourth novel, once again displays the author's gift for inventing richly strange and believable worlds that uncannily foretell our own.

'The passions and mores of the 1830s are flawlessly delineated in this masterly novel, imbued with the tang and power of the sea.' - Emma Hagestadt, Independent

'Extraordinary intelligent, reader-friendly novel...the virginal smith is a superb creation...Crace's memorably monstrous character will live on in the memory for a long time.' - Nick Hornby, Sunday Times
