About the book
As Jock lurches from one incident to the next, it seems impossible that someone could get themselves into quite so much strife while growing a few quiet molluscs – but Jock manages it and, if truth be told, he’s at it still.
The stories are told by a mate that Jock talked into joining him to make millions out of mussels. Although the money didn’t roll in, the laughs did, along with a barrage of abuse from all the mussel farmers and other people in the industry who were called upon to help Jock out of his fixes.
KJ Donaldson has drawn on a wealth of experience of mussel-farming and a love for that unique place: the Marlborough Sounds.
