Title: The Ocean Container
Author: Patrik Sampler
Publisher: Ninebark Press
Publication year: 2017
Format: paperback
Dimensions: 17.7 x 12.7 cm
Content: The Ocean Container is the story of an environmentalist in a North American petro-state. Accused of “economic terrorism”, he is exiled to a shipping container in a compound for the unemployed. There he makes a number of strange acquaintances: dubious charity providers, a spiritual healer, a man with two right eyes, a free-roaming tapir, and a theatrical company that may be a front for something else. Ultimately mistrustful of his surroundings, the “terrorist” opts for the isolation of his container, where the division between imagination and external reality is fatally blurred. Alternating between caustic satire and lyricism, mundane science fiction and the surrealist experimental novel, The Ocean Container is a comment on our current malaise.
