From an acclaimed biographer, a riveting account of what happened to the survivors of the Titanic. Using archival research and interviews with family members, Wilson offers a unique take on this fascinating story. He shows how some survivors used their experience to propel themselves on to fame and how others were wracked with guilt and refused to acknowledge they had been there. Some reputations were destroyed, and some survivors were so psychologically damaged that they took their own lives years later.

An interesting book about the Titanic survivors and what happened to them. Unfortunately, tends to deal with those who were in first and second class, since there is more documentation about them. So it would have been nice to find out how the immigrants and folk who lost everything in the sinking fared.

Although many books have been written about the Titanic disaster, few have addressed the experiences of the survivors. Drawing on previously unpublished letters, diaries and memoirs, Shadow of the Titanic brings to life the voices of those who survived.
