Editorial Reviews

Review

"Finely evocative of its sun, sea, and sand...with a comic line that moves as fast as a Marx Brothers movie."
New York Times Book Review

"Wouk's coral cuts, his sandy beaches are alive with stinging sand flies...His only pirate is a boozy, busted corporate raider named Lester...His hero is a middle-aged New York Jew with a heart condition. The result is not romance but farce laced with tears."
Time

"If there are hit musicals in fiction, this is one."
Newsweek

About the Author

Herman Wouk (born May 27, 1915) is an bestselling American author, with a number of notable novels to his credit, including The Caine Mutiny, The Winds of War, and War and Remembrance. He was born in New York City, into a Jewish family that had immigrated from Russia, and received an A.B. from Columbia University. He was first a radio scriptwriter, and worked with Fred Allen, then in 1941 worked for the US government on radio spots selling war bonds. Wouk then joined the United States Navy and served in the Pacific Theater, an experience he later characterized as educational; "I learned about machinery, I learned how men behaved under pressure, and I learned about Americans." His first ship was the USS Zane, then he was second-in-command on the Southard. He started his writing career onboard, working on a novel during his off-duty hours. He married Betty Sarah Brown in 1945, with whom he had three sons, became a fulltime writer in 1946, and published his debut novel, Aurora Dawn in 1947. In 1952, The Caine Mutiny received the Pulitzer Prize. In 1998, he received the Guardian of Zion Award.
