The Perfect Storm, Sebastian Junger

Junger’s narrative nonfiction takes a close look at the fishing industry and the innumerable dangers that surround it. The story was both moving and informative and left me with a deep appreciation for the New England men and women who deal with these risks and losses as a profession.

Definitely not a quick read, but fully worth the commitment. I recommend The Perfect Storm in both its text and film forms. For those looking to learn more about this industry, I also highly recommend Dead Reckoning by Alaskan fisherman Dave Atcheson.
