Work so that you can keep working. It seemed a proposition that could easily end in suicide. I wanted to escape this. I wanted to free myself from the working world and have time to write. And I wanted adventure. Grendel could never free me, but this boat could. David Vann has loved boats all his life. So when his academic career seems to be stuck in the doldrums, he leaps at the opportunity to start an educational charter business, teaching creative writing workshops aboard a sailboat. But a trip to Turkey sees him dreaming bigger—and before he knows it, he is at the helm of his own ninety-foot boat, running charters along the Turkish coast. And here his troubles begin. Sinking deep into debt, and encountering everything from a lost rudder to freak storms, Vann is on the verge of losing everything—including his life. Part high-seas adventure, part journey of self-discovery, A Mile Down is a gripping and unforgettable story of struggle and redemption by a writer at the top of his game.

"Three Cents a Mile" is the story of a roguish journey that lasted more than two years and circled the globe. The trip was fun, even hilarious at times. It was alway fascinating, like crossing Iran during its revolution. At times it was dangerous, like being held up by bandits in a Baluchistan desert. I met who must be the greatest pickpocket in the world, the dirtiest job in the world, and some of the world's saints. But it is primarily about the thousands of people who left home to drift across continental divides and what made them do it -- and what made me do it.
