On July 24, 2013, lob­ster­man John Aldridge fell over­board 40 miles off Long Is­land, New York, as his fish­ing part­ner aboard Anna Mary, An­thony Sosin­ski, slept be­low. Lost in the North At­lantic with­out a life jacket, fend­ing off sharks and sea birds, Aldridge dis­cov­ers that his boots can be filled with air, which “changes ev­ery­thing.” Mean­while, the close-knit Mon­tauk fish­ing com­mu­nity joins with the Coast Guard to bring home one of their own. A Speck in the Sea in­cludes Aldridge’s ac­count and Sosinki’s nar­ra­tion of the res­cue op­er­a­tion that saved him. (We­in­stein Books, $27)
