Interesting tidbit from the NY Times obit:

-->> “Beautiful Swimmers” has never gone out of print since its publication in 1976. In 1994 Back Bay Books reissued it in paperback with a preface by the novelist John Barth and an afterword by the author, who in the meantime had returned to the sea in “Distant Water: The Fate of the North Atlantic Fisherman” (1983), a look into the world of giant commercial trawlers. <<--

Impressive!

Yeah, I have "Distant Water" around here someplace too. Another good read, as I recall, but not as impressive as the first book.
