Don't Miss Our Coming Events:

A Door in Dark Water

Door in Dark Water chronicles ten years in the life of P. D. Callahan, a college boy from the suburbs of Boston, who jumps straight into the hardscrabble world of Maine herring fishing in 1972 in South Bristol As he dives deep into the darkness of fishing to make money, he realizes that he has walked through a secret doorway to a place where knowledge stems from the physical world, the corrosive and creative force of the sea, the emotional act of catching something alive and selling it for food and money, and living to the next day and the next day.

Callahan's crazy unplanned career is the subject of his new memoir, DOOR IN DARK WATER, the story of the people he loved, their collective moments of terror and temporary stardom, and the herring fishing culture long since lost.
