"I can testify that storms change lives, because one changed mine."--John Rousmaniere, from the Introduction
John Rousmaniere's classic "Fastnet, Force 10," which the "Los Angeles Times" called "a narrative worthy of the best sea literature," established him as one of the foremost nautical writers of our time. In "After the Storm," his most ambitious work yet, his quest for meaning amid chaos takes storm stories to a new level of revelation and universality. "After the Storm" is a moving, provocative exploration of the roots and consequences of sudden tragedy in human affairs.
"Vivid, wise, and heartfelt. The crowning achievement of one of America's foremost sailing writers."--Nathaniel Philbrick, National Book Award - winning author of "Into the Heart of the Sea"
"As captivating as it is unusual. Rousmaniere's descriptions of hurricanes and shipwrecks are among the best in the literature of the sea, but his book is far more than a sea story."--Philip Caputo, Pulitzer Prize - winning author of "A Rumor of War" and "The Voyage"
"Among writers who sail and sailors who write, John Rousmaniere is unrivaled in his technical expertise, his breadth of thought and feeling, and in his vigor and lucidity as a storyteller. His best book yet."--Jonathan Raban, author of "Passage to Juneau" and "Bad Land"
"A thinking person's "Perfect Storm.""--Daniel Finamore, Russell W. Knight Curator of Maritime Art and History, Peabody Essex Museum
"No one writes about the violence of the sea better than John Rousmaniere, and he proves it again and again in "After the Storm.""--Stuart Woods, author of "Blue Water, Green Skipper" and "The Short Forever"
