Calm Sea and Prosperous Voyage by Bette Howland

Calm Sea and Prosperous Voyage

by Bette Howland

Title Details

Unabridged Edition
Running Time
13 Hrs. 54 Min.


Calm Sea and Prosperous Voyage restores to the literary canon an extraordinarily gifted writer, who was recognized as a major talent before all but disappearing from public view for decades, until nearly the end of her life. Bette Howland herself was an outsider - an intellectual from a working-class neighborhood in Chicago; a divorce and single mother, to the disapproval of her family; an artist chipped away at by poverty and perfection. Each of these facets plays a central role in her work. Mining her deepest emotions for her art, she chronicles the tension of her generation. Calm Sea and Prosperous Voyage introduces a new generation of listeners to a wry, brilliant observer and a writer of great empathy and sly, joyous humor.
