Author Info
John Hersey
The son of American missionaries, Hersey lived in China until the age of 10, after which he was educated in the U.S. at Hotchkiss and Yale. He also studied literature at Cambridge University. He was a war correspondent for "Time" and "Life" magazines during World War II; after the war he wrote for various magazines and taught at Yale, among other colleges. He was married twice and had five children. His first novel, "A Bell for Adano" (1944), received the Pulitzer Prize for literature. His 1946 account of the bombing of Hiroshima remains a classic of journalism. Many of Hersey's works have a historical focus, including his posthumous story collection, "Key West Tales", published in 1994.
From the Publisher
Annotation A disquisition on the art of fishing, from the Nobel Prize-winning novelist and reporter. Written in the form of a dialogue between the "Fisherman" and the "Stranger," who discuss fishing and many unrelated topics in a not-too-carefully organized way, it was originally published in the "New Yorker".
Editors Note The pleasures of a summer's bluefishing off Martha's Vineyard are marvelously evoked as John Hersey reflects upon the angler's art, wonders of the teeming oceans where fish and fisherman confront each other, and the web of interdependence they share. 14 drawings.
Editors Note 2 While on a fishing trip an experienced fisherman teaches a young stranger about bluefish and life
