Close Quarters

Following Rites of Passage, this is second of Golding's Sea Trilogy. Half-way to Australia in a wilderness of heat, stillness and sea mists, a ball is held on a becalmed ship. In this surreal atmosphere the passengers dance and flirt, while beneath them thickets of weed spread over the hull.
