It was a ‘perfectâ storm- perfect, meteorologically, in that it could not be worse. It found its terrible heart 500 miles off the coast of Massachusetts, coming to fruition in 120 mile-an-hour winds and ten-storey waves. And into its path wandered the fishing boat Andrea Gail and her six-man crew.

Synopsis

The Perfect Storm by Sebastian Junger

The 'perfect storm' is a once-in-a-hundred-years combination: a high pressure system from the Great Lakes, running into storm winds over an Atlantic island - Sable Island - and colliding with a weather system from the Caribbean: Hurricane Grace. This work presents the story of that storm.

Reviews

‘Terrifying, sad, exhilarating, humbling and unforgettable.â Daily Mail

‘A magnificent sea-yarn…it deserves to storm these shores.â Observer
