Ship of Fools (Porter book)

  • Type: Novel

People don't read very attentively. Everything I've written, from 'Flowering Judas' to 'Pale Horse, Pale Rider' through 'Ship of Fools,' is one continuous line. But I suppose it's a horrible job to ask anyone to read five books just to find out what 'Ship of Fools' is about.
