What We're Reading Now
"This book is a smooth mix of science, politics, and fishermen. Few people give lobsters much thought beyond supper but the people written about in this book have built their lives and lively-hood around this sea-dwelling creature. This book provided more information about lobsters, the scientists who study them, the politicians that want to protect them, and the fishermen who co-exist with them than I had ever imagined possible. The book was insightful, informative, and funny. "

In this intimate portrait of an island lobstering community and an eccentric band of renegade biologists, journalist Revor Corson escorts the reader onto the slippery decks of fishing boats, through danger-filled scuba dives, and deep into the churning currents of the Gulf of Maine, to learn about the secret undersea lives of lobsters.
