I have read many accounts of the Tohoku earthquake and tsunami--this book is the most beautiful and profound. The author has painstakingly interviewed many of those who lost loved ones as well as those who were caught in the water yet lived. Perhaps even more poignant, the book explores with fondness and sadness, the nature of the Japanese character. An important book.
