Michael Schumacher – The Edmund Fitzgerald
Kenosha’s own Michael Schumacher has compiled an impressive body of work since he published his first book, a revealing biography of the beat poet Allen Ginsberg Dharma Lion in 1991. The prolific local author’s titles include biographies of musicians Eric Clapton and folksinger Phil Ochs, cartoonists Will Eisner and Al Capp, as well as filmmaker Francis Ford Coppola. In recent years, he has turned his talents to historical accounts of storms and shipwrecks on the Great Lakes, in Mighty Fitz: The Sinking of the Edmund Fitzgerald; Wreck of the Carl D.: A True Story of Loss, Survival and Rescue at Sea; and November’s Fury: The Deadly Great Lakes Hurricane of 1913.
