As a schoolboy, Terry was greatly inspired by E.A. Poe's mysterious novel,
The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym of Nantucket
and re-wrote parts of the story to feature his classmates and teachers as charaters upon the Grampus.

"Southern is more 'Nathaniel Hawthorne' than Nathanael West",
to whom Norman Mailer once compared Terry
