Gallions Reach is the story of an East End shipping clerk, Jim Colet, who, in a moment of rebellion against the tyranny of dull work and a bullying employer, causes his boss¿s death with an unlucky blow. He escapes to sea, without any clear intention of doing so, and becomes purser on the Altair, a steamer making her way across the Indian Ocean. The Altair goes down in a tropical storm; the crew are rescued by a liner, and Colet meets a prospector who takes him on an expedition into the depths of the Malay jungle. H. M. Tomlinson subtitled his novel ¿A romance¿, and it is in a sense a romantic version of his own life; but what makes it a classic is his marvellous power of description, and his extraordinary command of what J. B. Priestley called ¿a magnificent and idiomatic prose style, as individual as a voice.



Tomlinson is one of the very small company of writers who have created classics out of their travels.


Gallions Reach was first published in 1927.
