Summary
"This is a story of that day--a day that began much like any other day at the ragtag end of the summer season on the eastern end of Long Island--better known as The Hamptons. The storm came without warning landing at three in the afternoon bringing with it unprecedented wind and rain and waves so high and powerful they were recorded on seismographs 5000 miles away in Alaska. But A DAY LIKE ANY OTHER is not just a hurricane novel. The storm is a framing device for an historical tableau vivant of this near mythical place--The Hamptons--brought to life via the stories of townspeople, the wealthy summer colony, the fishing folk and the art crowd. Written by a natural tale-spinner and masterful portraitist of character and place, it does have one wild, furious storm at its center--an historic tempest that wreaked havoc on the little towns and villages that line the ocean front of the South Fork of Long Island. Could it happen again? Yes--it will almost certainly happen again and no matter how many moguls build seaside monuments defying the odds, another hurricane like 1938 will surely be the deadliest in American history."--Amazon.com
