Neil Steinberg on Sailing with His Father

June 16, 2002

In his youth, Bob Steinberg crewed on the merchant marine vessel, The Empire State. His son, newspaper columnist Neil Steinberg booked passage to Italy for both of them on his father’s old ship. He hoped it would bring them closer together. As he tells Anne Strainchamps, it didn’t. Steinberg tells the whole sad, funny story in “Don’t Give Up th Ship: Finding My Father While Lost at Sea.”
