Description
In a "captivating read that begins where most other Titanic books end" (Library Journal, starred review), the biographer of Patricia Highsmith and Harold Robbins here profiles the survivors of that horrific event and how they coped in the aftermath. How did they come to remember that night, a disaster that has been likened to the destruction of a small town? Andrew Wilson reveals how some used their experience to propel themselves on to fame, while others were so racked with guilt that they spent the rest of their lives under the Titanic's shadow, or were so psychologically damaged that they eventually took their own lives. Here are famous survivors like Madeleine Astor (who became a bride, a widow, an heiress, and a mother all within a year), Lady Duff Gordon, and White Star Line chairman J. Bruce Ismay, as well as second- and third-class passengers like the Navratil brothers, who were traveling under assumed names because they were being abducted by their father.
