Read full description of the books Mais Um Dia Magnífico no Mar:Em Mais um dia magnífico no mar, o inglês Geoff Dyer relata a experiência de passar duas semanas num porta-aviões norte-americano. Com o estilo elegante e divertido que o consagrou, Dyer descreve as particularidades de um navio de guerra — marinheiros que administram freezers de comida processada, uma academia de ginástica para oficiais, um bloco prisional ocioso. Embora o autor seja um ranzinza com restrições alimentares e aversão a motores, seu relato é leve e generoso, cheio de curiosidade e respeito pelo trabalho da tripulação. Mais um dia magnífico no mar deixa claro por que Geoff Dyer tem sido celebrado como uma das vozes mais originais e divertidas da literatura contemporânea.
