The Titanic epic told largely from the perspective of six of her first-class passengers, including the naval architect who designed the ship, a movie star, a vice president of the Pennsylvania Railroad and his 17-year-old son, Isidor Strauss, who founded Macy's Department Store, and Lucy-Noelle-Martha Leslie, the Countess of Rothes. This is an incisive and engrossing account of the ship's evolution and tragic loss that injects intelligent light into an event that is as much enshrouded in legend as Titanic's remains are in the total darkness of the deep ocean. It is both a paean to the genius of the age that gave birth to her and a eulogy for the hubris that doomed her. ~ Reviewed by Alden Graves
