Another Great Day at Sea : Life Aboard the USS George H.W. Bush Paperback
by GEOFF DYER
Part of the Writers in Residence series
Another Day at Sea by Geoff Dyer is the first title from Writers in Residence; a collectable set of books that bring together some of the greatest writers and photographers on the planet to reveal the normally faceless organizations that shape the modern world.
The arresting, full-colour photography, depicting a subculture that is by turns surprising, hilarious, beautiful and insane, is by Chris Steele-Perkins, an award-winning Magnum photographer. Writers in Residence finds a third way between books and magazines, with every book in the set designed by Jeremy Leslie of magCulture. ï¿½ ï¿½ Meeting the Captain, the F-18 pilots and the dentists, experiencing everything from a man-overboard alert to the Steel Beach Party, Dyer guides us through the most AIE (acronym intensive environment) imaginable.
Underlying Dyer's efforts to overcome the disadvantages of being the oldest, tallest (actually, second tallest), and most self-conscious person on the boat is an intense fascination with the military world.
In recording daily life on board the ship, Dyer illuminates a society where discipline and conformity, dedication and optimism, become a form of self-expression. ï¿½ ï¿½
