Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 057106809X, Paperback)'Pincher Martin' is an elemental adventure story, a tale of frightening suspense. It is also, as all great literature must be, a story of man's ultimate struggle - not so much with fate and death as with himself. Pincher Martin , sole survivor of a torpedoed destroyer, is miraculously cast up on a huge barren rock in mid-Atlantic. Pitted against him are the sea, the blaze of day, the biting cold of night - and the almost unimaginable isolation of one man alone facing ever-present, unpredictable death.

Drowning in the freezing North Atlantic, Christopher Hadley Martin, temporary lieutenant, happens upon a grotesque rock, an island that appears only on weather charts. To drink there is a pool of rain water; to eat there are weeds and sea-anemones. Through the long hours with only himself to talk to, Martin must try to assemble the truth of his fate, piece by terrible piece. From the author of Lord of the Flies, Pincher Martin is a terrifying and unforgettable journey into one man's mind.
