Into the Heart of Hurricane Season

June too soon.
July stand by.
August look out you must.
September remember.
October all over.

—Old Mariner’s Rhyme

Good riddance to hurricane season, we’ll all be glad when its over and done, but in the meantime if you find yourself ill at ease, why not hunker down and pick up a novel from NYRB Classics? After stowing the masts and battening down the hatches, check out these two hurricane-infused novels, A High Wind in Jamaica and In Hazard, both by Richard Hughes. However…. Hopefully we all manage to stay dry this hurricane season.
