About the Book
West Of The Equator is a satirical account of one man’s spiritual journey, as told by his spirit guide, Ian —a well seasoned West Indian merchant sailor who narrates the story of a Chicago stock trader who goes to the West Indies and buys a 75’ catamaran to set out in search of Paradise. Instead, he finds a female captain who turns out to be the love of his life, chaos, mayhem, and, eventually, true happiness—but only after he faces unbelievable trials and is stripped of everything he owns along the journey. In this humbled state, he discovers that he is, in fact, the island, his life the vessel, and that everything he’d every truly needed had been aboard all along. It is a very funny satirical look at life in Paradise and the Zen of sailing. • “West of the Equator,” is about all the places Jimmy as ever sung about — “Cheeseburger in Paradise (St. Barths)” and numerous other songs.
