About this title

Synopsis:

This novel, told through the eyes of Morgan, nephew of the owner of the shipping line, recaptures the four fateful days of the Titanic's voyage before disaster struck. Beryl Bainbridge has been shortlisted for the Booker Prize three times and has won both the Guardian and Whitbread Prizes.

Review:

After taking on the ill-fated Scott expedition to the South Pole in her previous book, The Birthday Boys, the novelist tackles a much larger 1912 disaster: the sinking of the Titanic. The narrator, a 22-year-old named Morgan, brushes up against real-life victims such as John James Astor early in the voyage, while falling in love with the beautiful and unobtainable Wallis Ellery. The deadly maiden voyage of the world's largest ocean liner becomes a journey of self-discovery in this portentous, postmodern work, shortlisted for the 1996 Booker Prize.
