Narratives in a Digital Age
Reading List: ”Fatal Voyage”
For Wednesday, we will be reading journalist John Hooper’s Kindle Single, “Fatal Voyage: The Wrecking of the Costa Concordia.” Hooper is the Rome-based correspondent of The Economist and Guardian, who has been reporting from the Mediterranean for nearly 25 years.
Kindle Single description via Amazon:
“Fatal Voyage is the first comprehensive account of the wrecking of the Costa Concordia - an enthralling narrative of events before, during and after the 114,000-ton liner slammed into rocks off the Mediterranean island of Giglio.
Focusing on the experiences of a Californian family, Fatal Voyage brings to life the terrifying reality of being trapped aboard the listing, crippled Costa Concordia. And it shows that some of the issues raised by the Titanic disaster are as relevant today as they were 100 years ago.”
