Great Read: “Unsinkable” via The New Yorker

April 13th, 2012 · No Comments · reading list

I was one of those teenage girls who may have seen Titanic (the version directed by James Cameron) maybe… two… three… okay, four times within two months of its release. Maybe you were too? Either way, the haunting tale of the ship has been retold and will continue to fascinate writers for years to come.

Over morning breakfast, I was flipping to the back of The New Yorker to see if this week’s long form pieces were of interest, when I came across Daniel Mendelsohn’s piece. I’d say he’s a big fan of the disaster, but that would read the wrong way. He pieces together an engaging analysis of  why this story remains engrained in our pop culture 100 years later. If you’re a Titanic nerd like me, it’s  definitely worth a read. Let’s just say the ending left me with goosebumps! Read it here.
