Peter Geye at First Books 2012

Opening lines:
"The officer stood the midnight watch, his hand easy on the wooden wheel. He was steering the ore boat Ragnarok, five hours outside Duluth harbor and downbound for the Superior Steel Works in Detroit."

Peter Geye 300 dpi.jpgPeter Geye's novel Safe from the Sea, published in 2010 by Unbridled Books, tells the story of a son and his father reconnecting thirty-five years after the father survived the tragic wreck of a Great Lakes oar boat. Set against the dramatic Northern Minnesota lakeshore, the book, writes Joseph Boyden, "is a tautly written gem." Geye received his MFA from the University of New Orleans and PhD from Western Michigan University, where he served as editor of Third Coast. He was born and raised in Minneapolis, where he continues to live.
