Creating a world which is all the more compelling because it draws its
inspiration from his own roots, Makyo has us following a young boy who
sees his world and its certainties collapse. In trying to discover the
real origins of young Moise, the author recreates a bygone age,
accurately portraying the port of Dunkirk at the end of the nineteenth
century. A worthy successor to the legendary fishermen who returned from
Icelandic waters with amazing stories, Makyo pays his forebears the
literary and artistic tribute which they deserve.
