Now Reading: Hiroshima

John Hersey’s amazing narrative follows six survivors of the bomb. (It was originally published in the New Yorker as a stand-alone piece, with no other articles or ads.)

The human mind seems to be unable to grasp such a huge event, and I don’t think I’ve ever been able to imagine what it was like in the aftermath. I love the book because it shows in detail how people picked up the pieces and what it means to survive.
