"Under The Eye of The Storm" was written by John Hersey. Published by Alfred A. Knopf it was copyrighted in 1967. This is a first edition signed by the author.
This is the tale of the sea, of two men and their wives on a sailboat, moving toward the heart of a great storm. It is an adventure story that carries four travelers on the yawl Harmony from Edgartown to Menemsha to Block Island and thence out into a huge, dark cone of uncertainty. In the modulating airs of the voyage four personalities emerge to work on each other. The two marriages seem to react to the barometer.
The book has green cloth covers with a yellow embossed design. It is in very good vintage condition. The pages and binding are tight and there is some light soiling on the cover as well as some wear at the bottom of the spine.
