John Paul Jones, at sea and in the heat of the battle, was the great American hero of the Age of Sail. He was to history what Patrick O’Brian’s Jack Aubrey and C.S. Forester’s Horatio Hornblower are to fiction.4/4(17). He is the editor of two other volumes in the Library of America series, Frederick Douglass: Autobiographies and, with William L. Andrews, Slave Narratives. Paul Devlin, co-editor, teaches English at the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy and has published essays and criticism in many periodicals.

      John Paul Jones, –92, American naval hero, b. near Kirkcudbright, Scotland. His name was originally simply John Paul. Early Life John Paul went to sea when he and his youth was adventure-filled. He was chief mate on a slave ship in but, disgusted with the work, soon quit. It’s actually pleasantly disarming how conventional I’ll Never Write My Memoirs is, given the hubristic nature of her persona. That bombast is there, but it’s flirty, expressive and informative. Jones elaborates upon each phase of her storied life (hippie nudist, Parisian fashion muse, Studio 54 siren, Warhol darling, Jamaican punk pop vamp, an actual Vamp) without the thirst of a trashy.
