I read and reviewed an earlier version of this novel. I wish I could remember better what the differences are between the draft and the publish revision. IMO dying and comedy are easy, revising is hard. Although it seems to my rotten memory that there are some marked changes, the 2014ish review stands.
The only thing I'd warn is that Perkins does not always succeed on the cultural sensitivity front. Trigger warnings on the word "ghetto" used by a white lady to describe run-down things and an androgynous person being referred to as "it."
But if the idea of three perimenopausal and menopausal sailors as protagonists is appealing to you and you can get past a middle-aged Midwestern white lady's presumably unintended offenses, you should give More Than You Think You Know a trip through the locks (<---sailing terminology! There's a lot of it!).
