Description - Brother Fish by Bryce Courtenay

Inspired by real events, Brother Fish tells the story of three people from vastly differing backgrounds. All they have in common is a tough beginning in life.

Jack McKenzie is a harmonica player, soldier, dreamer and small-time professional fisherman from a tiny island in Bass Strait. Nicole Lenoir-Jourdan is a strong-willed woman hiding from an ambiguous past in Shanghai. Larger than life, Private Jimmy Oldcorn was once a street kid and leader of a New York gang. Together, they reap a vast and not always legitimate fortune from the sea.

Spanning eighty years and four continents, Brother Fish is an inspiring human drama of three lives brought together and changed forever by the extraordinary events of recent history. But most of all it is about the power of friendship and love.

'It is a big, racy read that covers not just Australia, but China, Korea and America ... underpinned with impressive historical research.' The Age

'Triads, the yakuza, Bass Strait storms - Courtenay packs it all in as he layers tragedy and triumph in almost equal measure.' Sydney Morning Herald
