The survival methods and mating rituals of men and marine mammals : [a novel] / Chris Kenry. - New York : Kensington Books, 2012. - 450 p. ; 21 cm.

There are times in life when you suddenly begin to rethink your choices. For children's book author Davis Garner, such a moment comes when he finds himself hiding in a pile of dirty laundry, trying to avoid his landlord. Desperate times lead to desperate measures, and so Davis signs on to be a technical writer on a research vessel in Antarctica. What Davis knows about marine technology would comfortably fit in a tweet, but he soon realizes that no one around him is quite who they seem, including Maureen, an ice-cold network administrator partial to hacking others' emails; a lovelorn vessel technician known by the acronym Worm; and Artaud, a charismatic scientist with dubious motives. In between waves of seasickness and self-doubt, Davis finds creative inspiration and an unlikely passion for his new job. And something more unexpected still-- the willingness to fight for the principles he believes in and the life he still loves.
