Ghosts of the Tsunami is a story written by Richard Lloyd Parry. It is easy to be the person that sends prayers to people instead of one of the people that actually went through the change. The tsunami that hit Japan in the year 2011 was very devastating and took the lives of many people there. It has been six years since the disaster, and it still seems incomprehensible to this day. The tsunami was a terrifying thing.
- The tsunami inflicted billions and billions of dollars in material destruction, yet it is much more difficult to put a price on the long lasting emotional and mental damage it caused.
- A tsunami can erode the bonds between people much like it destroys physical connections like bridges and roads.
- Ghosts of the Tsunami is a lamentation, an honest and compassionate guide through overwhelming grief.
“In his new book Ghosts of the Tsunami, author Richard Lloyd Parry considers the aftermath of the 2011 Japanese tsunami, which took thousands of lives, and which haunts its survivors to this day.”
