Summary
  • 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
  • March 11, 2011. A powerful earthquake sent a 120-foot-high tsunami smashing into the coast of northeast Japan; more than eighteen thousand people were crushed, burned to death, or drowned. Parry lived through the earthquake in Tokyo, and over six years of reporting he found himself drawn back again and again to a village that had suffered the greatest loss of all: Okawa Elementary School was decimated. Here he tells the story of how a nation faced a catastrophe, and the struggle to find consolation in the ruins
