I’m adding the opening chapter of my second novel, Something for Nothing to this constellation of sites. It carries forward strands from Shoal Hope another dozen years. It too is a story of Provincetown, now during Prohibition and the aftermath of World War I on the verge of the Crash of 1929. Instead of being structured around the local fisheries, the fish traps, the spiral of the Cape itself as in Shoal Hope, this story revolves around a disaster in the late fall of 1927 when an American Navy submarine, the S-4, was rammed and sunk by an American destroyer operating as part of the Coast Guard’s anti-rumrunner patrol. This happened within sight of Provincetown’s Wood End. Six sailors survived the incident and awaited rescue as the weather worsened and their air grew foul. We touch down on a variety of moments in that year haunted by the collision to come or torn by its aftermath.
