Something for Nothing, a novel of Provincetown, Prohibition & the Aftermath of War

Antonio Dias' second Provincetown novel during Prohibition and the aftermath of World War I on the verge of the Crash of 1929. This story revolves around a disaster in the late fall of 1927 when a U.S. Navy submarine, the S-4, was rammed and sunk by a destroyer operating as part of the Coast Guard’s anti-rumrunner patrol within sight of Provincetown’s Wood End. Six sailors survived the incident. They awaited rescue as the weather worsened and their air grew foul. We peer into a variety of lives in this fateful year haunted by this collision to come or torn by its aftermath.
