The Perfect Storm

The Perfect Storm: A True Story of Men Against the Sea, by Sebastian Junter

Category: non-fiction

Subject/Topic: “The book follows the lives of the swordfishing crew of the Andrea Gail and their family members before and during the 1991 Perfect Storm. Among the men boarding the Andrea Gail were Billy Tyne, Alfred Pierre, David “Sully” Sullivan, Michael “Bugsy” Moran, Dale “Murph” Murphy, and Bobby Shatford, each foe bringing their own intelligence, physical strength, and hope aboard with them. The men were raised with the expectation that they would become fishermen. As “Sully” said, even before they had left for their long journey, “It’s the money … If I didn’t need the money I wouldn’t go near this thing.”  [from Wikipedia, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Perfect_Storm_(book)]
