Blame And (a Little) Praise

February 2024
1min read

I was delighted to see The Caine Mutiny listed as the most underrated novel in your May/June issue. I first read the book shortly after I got out of the Navy, and I couldn’t put it down. Everyone I knew said the same thing. I found it compelling in a way no other novel has ever been for me before or since. I hope John Steele Gordon’s praise will bring Willie Keith, Capt. Queeg, and the rest to a new generation of readers.

We hope you enjoy our work.
