Description of this Book

Josef Haslinger, whose literary works have been awarded over thirteen prizes, has written a vivid account of his family's Christmas vacation in 2004 at a beach resort on Thailand's spectacular Phi Phi Island. On December 26th an earthquake off Sumatra caused the tsunami that nearly killed them all - along with over 200,000 others in the region, including half of the guests and staff at their resort. Haslinger's report bears personal witness to that horrific day and its aftermath. Gruesome details and touching acts of kindness are chronicled with meticulous care. A year after the catastrophe, the author and his wife returned to the island to check facts and compare survivors' tales. The result is a deeply moving chronicle of suffering and survival.
