New Ocean Blog…

Full disclosure: my mother edits Julia Whitty’s books. But damn, is she a good writer: about diving, the oceans, reefs, and our place on a mostly-watery world. She has a brand-new blog which shares the name of her upcoming book, “Deep Blue Home,” arriving in stores this summer. You can support the struggling publishing industry in the meantime by buying her first book, “The Fragile Edge.”

Even in the absence of the nepotistic motive, I would recommend reading this—especially for anyone who aspires to write well about science. I remember reading in a review of Dr. Atomic, the opera about Robert Oppenheimer, that our culture is just beginning to create true art about science. Whitty’s writing, in my opinion, is some of the best nonfiction art I have seen.
