The Watch That Ends the Night
Voices from the Titanic
author: Allan Wolf
Arrogance and innocence, hubris and hope — twenty-four haunting voices of the Titanic tragedy, as well as the iceberg itself, are evoked in a stunning tour de force. Slipping in telegraphs, undertaker’s reports, and other records, poet Allan Wolf offers a breathtaking, intimate glimpse at the lives behind the tragedy, told with clear-eyed compassion and astounding emotional power.
"A lyrical, monumental work of fact and imagination." — Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
