Ghosts of the Tsunami
Death and Life in Japan's Disaster ZoneBook - 2017
On March 11, 2011, a 120-foot-high tsunami smashed into the northeast coast of Japan, leaving more than eighteen thousand people dead. It was Japan's single greatest loss of life since the atomic bombing of Nagasaki in 1945. Richard Lloyd Parry, an award winning foreign correspondent, lived through the earthquake in Tokyo and spent six years reporting from the disaster zone. Ghosts of the Tsunami is the intimate account of an epic tragedy, told through the perspectives of those who lived through it. -- Adapted from book jacket.
