About the Author

Michael Schumacher has published three previous books about the Great Lakes: Mighty Fitz, about the sinking of the Edmund Fitzgerald; The Wreck of the Carl D., about the loss of the Carl D. Bradley; and November’s Fury, an account of the Storm of 1913, the deadliest in Great Lakes history. Dharma Lion—his acclaimed biography of Allen Ginsberg—will be reprinted by the University of Minnesota Press in 2016. He recently edited The Essential Ginsberg and is currently writing an account of the 1968 presidential election, also to be published by Minnesota. He lives in Wisconsin.


"Michael Schumacher's latest book is tragic, gripping, and hard to put down. He captures the fury of the Great Lakes as a winter storm rips a steel hull in two and tosses the crew into the lake’s cold, dark maw. What happens next is a true survival tale."—Cary Griffith, author of Savage Minnesota and Lost in the Wild

"Schumacher provides depth and reality to the story that he tempers with engaging writing."—Great Lakes Echo"For wreck junkies, this is a treasure trove."—Star Tribune"This remarkable and tragic true story will be appreciated by those who enjoy Great Lakes history."—Green Bay Press-Gazette

"Michael Schumacher delivers a clear and concise account of the tragedy of the Daniel J. Morrell. The book is a worthwhile addition to historical study of the wreck of the Daniel J. Morrell and to Schumacher’s growing list of Great Lakes shipwreck publications." —Inland Seas

"Torn in Two is a remarkable book and does a masterful job of closely focusing on the human element of the overall disaster." —The Michigan Historical Review
