The amazing adventures of Louis de Rougemont (as told by himself)
The adventurous Louis de Rougemont invites you to hear his amazing story of bravery, survival and celebrity that left 19th-century England spellbound. Dare to be whisked away in a story of the high seas, populated by exotic islanders, flying wombats, giant sea turtles and a monstrous man-eating octopus.
“Shipwrecked!” examines how far we’re willing to blur the line between fact and fiction in order to leave our mark on the world.
“A deft literate narrative folded into a vaudevillian romp with radio theater overtones. Colorful [and] compassionate speculations on the real-life deficiencies and pain that may have been at the root of Louis’ need for self-aggrandizement.” — Los Angeles Times
