A 1965 novel by famed American writer Herman Wouk (1915-2019), the main character, Norman Paperman, a New York City press agent, leaves the “rat-race” to reinvent himself as a Caribbean innkeeper. Legend has it Wouk based the story on his experiences managing Royal Mail Inn on Hassel Island in Charlotte Amalie Harbor.
