About Nobody in Particular

If you've never read The Caine Mutiny, the 1951 Pulitzer Prize-winning novel by Herman Wouk, or seen the 1954 movie adaptation starring Humphrey Bogart, now would surely be the perfect time to do so. 

Besides being a wonderfully written page-turner that exemplifies the inherent joys of storytelling as an art form, it presents a powerful study of a long-suppressed paranoid personality bubbling to the surface in someone who occupies a position of authority, ultimately bringing about his downfall, that you might want to know about. And despite having been written so long ago, it's quite timely.
