In 1991, one of the most powerful storms in recorded history developed in the North Atlantic. "The Perfect Storm," Sebastian Junger’s account of a fishing boat caught in the tempest, was a best-seller and has now been made into a Hollywood movie. The July Readers’ Review panel discusses this tense and true story.
