Another Great Day at Sea by Geoff Dyer is our first Writers in Residence title: part of a collectable set that brings together some of the greatest writers and photographers on the planet to reveal the typically faceless organisations that shape our modern world.
Another Great Day at Sea chronicles Dyer’s experiences, with humour and everyday tender human stories, on the largest aircraft carrier in the world, the USS George H.W. Bush. Dyer navigates the carrier’s daily routines and protocols: from flight deck choreography through to kitchens serving meals for a crew of five thousand to the deafening complexity of catapult and arresting gear.
Another Great Day at Sea is a dazzling social experiment, complete with arresting, full-colour photography by award-winning Magnum photographer Chris Steele-Perkins, a definitive, boundary collapsing work written by an author whose books otherwise defy definition.
