"Gentleman Overboard" by Herbert Clyde Lewis

Wednesday, June 05, 2024, 6 p.m.

Gentleman Overboard is the tale of a man who is suddenly in grave danger in the middle of the ocean after falling unnoticed from a ship between Honolulu and Panama. As he waits to be rescued, wondering if he has been missed, the suspense builds up as he hopes to avoid the same fate of the author of the book. As an author, Herbert Clyde Lewis was mostly forgotten by the time he died in 1950, only recently being properly rediscovered, mainly by the efforts of Brad Bigelow of the Neglected Books web site. The son of Russian immigrants to New York City, Lewis also worked as a newspaper reporter in America and China and on several Hollywood screenplays.
