Ten top books about women and the sea

Charlotte Runcie is an author and journalist. Her first book, Salt on Your Tongue, is a nonfiction story about women, art and the sea, and the epic nature of childbirth, told through the myths and legends of salt water.

One of her ten favorite books about women and the sea, as shared at the Guardian:
The Waves by Virginia Woolf

I don’t need to introduce Woolf’s classic experimental novel to you, but no list of books about women and the sea would be complete without it. It’s a work of interconnecting lives and ways of seeing the world, all flowing into one another. The way it’s written reflects the sea itself, with waves of narrative rushing in on top of one another, forever in flux. It’s the essential modern example of a woman writing about the sea and about people.
