The Lost Boys of Montauk: The True Story of the Wind Blown, Four Men Who Vanished at Sea, and the Survivors They Left Behind

By Amanda M. Fairbanks | GALLERY BOOKS | $28


On the surface, this portrait of a group of young men lost at sea is so much more than that: an exploratio­n of a community, a sociologic­al study and a tender probe of what it means to choose a life that is always on the brink of destructio­n. Fairbanks paints a fine picture of the Long Island hamlet of Montauk as it is and as it once was, interspers­ing an intriguing story with dollops of glittering history.
