Geoff Dyer’s incisive and witty voice depicts life on board the USS ship ‘George Bush’  –  the world’s largest aircraft carrier. His inventive descriptions are accompanied by photography by Chris Steele-Perkins, an award winning Magnum photographer.

Dyer depicts a subculture that is by turns surprising, hilarious, beautiful and insane and illuminates a society where discipline and conformity, dedication and optimism, become a form of self-expression. Another Great Day at Sea is a dazzling social experiment, bringing readers an unprecedented, behind the scenes glimpse of  military life at sea.
