I  have just finished reading this book and highly recommend it. John Craske was a Norfolk fisherman who became infirm and spent his life painting and embroidering what he knew best - life at sea and the North Norfolk coastline. Julia Blackburn can not find out a great deal about him but her discoveries lead us to learn more about the people who loved his work ( including 2 people whose work I love - Peter Pears and Sylvia Townsend Warner) and odd digressions and stories e.g. about Einstein's brief period of living in Norfolk.
