With Fate Conspire is the long-awaited second (and concluding) volume of John Caldwell’s autobiography. The first, Severely Dealt With, was an account of his harsh upbringing in Belfast and Glasgow (1911-1927), and the second volume begins with the sixteen-year-old Caldwell’s first voyage on the transatlantic liners of Glasgow’s Anchor Line. He gives a vivid account of life below deck, with the exploitation and petty tyranny that were the reality of this supposedly glamourous world.
