Read full description of the books Amagansett:I loved this book so much that when I finished it I turned back to the beginning and read it again. I was drawn to it because of the name of the English edition -- "The Whaleboat House" -- and even more so when I found that it was published in the US with the name "Amagansett", a town I know as a historian as well as a frequent visitor. Having lived in a hamlet on the East End of Long Island, and having studied its history, I was acutely aware of the dichotomy between the new rich and the old fishing and agricultural communities. In the 1990s the conflict between the clamdiggers and the summer people was still simmering there. Mills caught this perfectly for me, and I was surprised to find that several reviewers missed the point. What was particularly vivid, however, was the protagonist's war experiences. I still think of them often.
