Product Description

Review

?Brewster?s nuanced account introduces us to a plutocracy frolicking in the sunset of England?s Edwardian era and America?s Gilded Age. He pushes past stereotypes to vividly describe the elite realm on deck.? ? THE NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW

() --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Review

"First rate…takes us into the first-class suites reserved for the moneyed elite…[and] includes some spicy detail on Canadian first-classers." –Winnipeg Free Press

"Walter Lord’s A Night to Remember and James Cameron’s award-winning movie set the Titanic bar high. Hugh Brewster clears that bar with ease and shows again why the story never gets old." —Newark Star Ledger

"This is one of those rare books on the subject that provides information both new and relevant, in a scholarly but readable way. Highly recommended to anyone interested in the social history of the early 20th century." –Library Journal (starred review)

"An impressive amount of information, often directly pulling from firsthand accounts. The author vividly renders the collision, the sinking, the chilling wail of unseen swimmers calling from the cold water and the shipwreck's aftermath....a welcome, interesting addition to Titanic-related literature." –Kirkus Reviews

"...provides new research on the lives of both the victims and survivors... moving passages [describe] the ship’s final few hours." -Quill and Quire
