Oldport is a town full of ghosts and rum-running and strange characters. It was one of the earliest settlements on Long Island, a busy port in whaling days. Behind the facade of an ordinary village we find violence and corruption. A son comes back to confront his father. Strange things happen in the haunted old boat sheds along the disintegrating docks, where a prophet-like drunk staggers around and talks to himself. The author lived for a long time in the town that inspired this novel.
