Abstract:

When Edward Enfield was a lad, he was put on a ship and sent to Canada to avoid the Blitz. After three years in Ottawa, he returned to England and was sent off to boarding school. From there he entered Oxford and began his National Service. While vowing he did not want to work a job that took him away from England, he was hired by a shipping company and sent to Asia, where he got married, became an avid horseman, and discovered a hatred for sailing. Not bad for a man famous among his service friends for not being able to read a map. Part travelogue, part memoir, 'An Eastern Odyssey' is a love letter to a way of life that has disappeared, and an elegy to a good life lived.
