Winner of the 1989 National Book Award A classic tale of a man, a boat, and a storm, Spartina is the lyrical and compassionate story of Dick Pierce, a commercial fisherman along the shores of Rhode Island's Narragansett Bay. A kind, sensitive, family man, he is also prone to irascible outbursts against the people he must work for, now that he can no longer make his living from the sea. Pierce's one great passion, a fifty-foot fishing boat called Spartina, lies unfinished in his back yard.  Determined to get the funds he needs to buy her engine, he finds himself taking a foolish, dangerous risk.  But his real test comes when he must weather a storm at sea in order to keep his dream alive.  Moving and poetic, Spartina is a masterly story of one man's ongoing struggle to find his place in the world.

John Casey was born in 1939 in Worcester, Massachusetts. He received a B.A. from Harvard College in 1962, a LLB from Harvard Law School in 1965, and M.F.A. from the University of Iowa in 1968. He is a professor of English literature at the University of Virginia. He is also a novelist and translator. His novel Spartina, a classic tale of a man, a boat, and a storm, won the National Book Award in 1989. His other works include The Half-Life of Happiness, An American Romance, and Compass Rose.
