April 30, 2008 --


Now we know why Fred  Drasner, the former partner of Mort Zuckerman and co-publisher of the New York Daily News and US News & World Report, hasn't been returning our calls.

He's been lost at sea, taking a 'round-the-world cruise with his third wife Lora aboard their yacht Andromeda la Dea.

They were married in 2004 and the journey began shortly thereafter.

Lora captures much of the trip in a new coffee table book titled "Sunsets," set to be published by the Courage Books imprint of Perseus.

The couple is staging a book party at the Marlborough Gallery tonight from 6 to 9 p.m.
