The Voyage of the Rose City: An Adventure at Sea

A pseudo-interesting recounting of the son of Senator Moynihan’s few months at sea on an oil tanker going around the world in the 1980s. He finagles the job using his dad’s connections, which makes him hated on board until he becomes just one of the crew. The usual tales of drinking and whoring, sprinkled in with tensions between him and the crew, between the crew and the bosses. Not worth the time to read but I’d finished all my other books while on vacation. The book was compiled by the author’s mother after his death, as she was going through his old papers.
