The Shipping News Knots
a: A knot in the shipping news ~
b: The Way people relate to each other
What: "The Shipping News's" knots are like the way people related to each other. As mentioned in the Wiki article , Quoyle is a knot that lies on a ship's deck so that it can be walked on. But the book also presents a variety of other knots, that are symbolic of the way people can relate to each other. Maybe that's a theme of the book. You may be a Quolyle, but there are other knots available.
