Jim Gilbert, author of the critically acclaimed debut novel The Admiral.

“The Admiral” is set amid a reclusive community of aging yachts in mid-Atlantic, The Admiral is a swashbuckling tale of people riding out the holocaust on land caused by a risen sea, the effects of climate change and social collapse.
