A man wakes from a fever dream compelled to build a boat and sail away from the small island where he was born. The boat carries him to the next, bigger, island, where he becomes locked in a drunken and violent affair whose explosion propels him all the way to the mainland. There he struggles to understand the intricacies of a larger society and its dark underworld. As he encounters greed, corruption, and racial and religious hatred, he uncovers truths that allow him to redirect the course of his destiny. The boatmaker's journey cannot be traced on any map, and yet it is located at the epicenter of European history." -- Provided by publisher.
