American writer, the author of a best-selling first novel, "The Perfect Storm," 1997, the story of the 1991 sinking of a Gloucester, MA fishing boat. The book tells the story of the six men who went down with the Andrea Gail in one of the worst storms on record, a three-day northeaster that slammed ashore on 10/31/1991. Junger has built his writing credits with articles for magazines on such topics as wilderness wildfires, nature and its awesome capacity.
The son of a physicist and an artist, Junger forged his own path, enjoying the solitude of the woods and of the challenges of survival. He made extra cash as a high-climbing tree cutter, a hard and dangerous job that gave him with a chain-saw gash in 1994. He graduated from Wesleyan University with a degree in cultural anthropology in 1984, drifting into odd jobs as he honed his writing.
Good-looking enough to play the role himself, he will be portrayed by actor George Clooney in the film version of "The Perfect Storm," set to begin production 7/26/1999, Los Angeles.
