'The Dupe is the story of a man who fooled himself, told against the authentic background of life in a windjammer.  It is the story of a young ship's apprentice who lost his indentures by missing his ship because of drunkenness, and reduced to the level of a common seaman, brought with him to the fo'c'sle of the Laconda his brassbounder's cap, a bedraggled memento of more exalted days.'
