Gretel EhrlichFacing the Wave: A Journey in the Wake of the Tsunami

Gretel Ehrlich, the author of This Cold Heaven, The Future of Ice, and The Solace of Open Spaces, discusses and reads from her new book Facing the Wave: A Journey in the Wake of the Tsunami. A passionate student of Japanese poetry, theater, and art for much of her life, Ehrlich felt compelled to return to the earthquake-and-tsunami-devastated Tohoku coast to bear witness, listen to survivors, and experience the terror and exhilaration in villages and towns where all shelter and hope seemed lost. In an eloquent narrative that blends strong reportage, poetic observation, and deeply felt reflection, she takes us into the upside-down world of northeastern Japan, where nothing is certain and where the boundaries between living and dying have been erased by water.

($25.00) Pantheon ISBN # 9780307907318. You can visit Gretel Ehrlich‘s official web site as well.
