A remote Caribbean Island… A beachcomber who took what he wanted… And a blonde who was there for the taking

From the back

This Girl For Hire

She was blond, thin-waisted, stacked high… and she was asking for a job on my boat. “Sorry,” I said, “but somehow I can’t see you swabbing decks or scraping barnacles.” “There are other ways I can be useful,” she said. “Doing what?” “Anything, honey. Just anything at all.” Call me a damn fool and you’d be right. We were a two-man yawl bound from St. Thomas for Doubleshot Key, with plenty of predictable hell in our future.

Hiroshima

Bantam 404 (March, 1948). Cover by Geoffrey Biggs

Six Survived To Tell What Happened

I find it interesting that, even though this is a serious look at the consequences of atomic warfare, it is basically impossible to tell from the cover art that it takes place in Japan.

Hiroshima tells the stories of six survivors of the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima, covering a period of time immediately prior to and one year after the atomic bomb was dropped on August 6, 1945. It was originally published in The New Yorker. Although the story was originally scheduled to be published over four issues, the entire August 31, 1946 edition was dedicated to the article. The article and subsequent book are regarded as one of the earliest examples of the New Journalism, in which the story-telling techniques of fiction are adapted to non-fiction reporting.
