Story worth sharing

A rescue that no novel could describe

Some of you may have already read about it, but here it is in case you haven't.

A story about a guy who wrote a short story as decribed and a magazine writer that would even print it.....

I rest my case....

"Wasafiri was insured, and DeMott says he and his wife are talking about getting another boat. DeMott's experience may have been harrowing in the moment and embarrassing in its aftermath, but in his dark imagination the ending could have been far worse. DeMott once wrote a short story called "Seventeen Days on a Raft" in which a husband agonizes over whether he should eat his dead wife's flesh to survive. Now there's a sea story with no happy ending."
