North To Alaska: My Philadelphia Inquirer Review Of 'The Alaskan Laundry'
My review of Brendan Jones' The Alaskan Laundry appeared in today's Philadelphia Inquirer.

Note: I’ve never been to Alaska or worked in the fishing industry, but like Tara Marconi, I’m from South Philly. Like Tara and the author, I went to sea in my late teens (in my case, on an aircraft carrier). Like Tara and the author, I boxed a bit in my youth. And like Tara and the author, I lived on a tugboat (in my case, a Navy tugboat at the old submarine base in Scotland). I found Jones’ descriptions of things I know - South Philly, the sea, boats and boxing - to be accurate and vivid.
