A “virtuoso” novel (Time) of the Titanic disaster-told from the perspective of the ship’s motley band of European musicians. Translated by Joan Tate.

Review:

Among the many myths surrounding the 1912 sinking of the Titanic was the notion that the ship's band played on until the end. Norwegian novelist Erik Fosnes Hansen has seized upon that story as the hinge for this fascinating, if at times distressing, book about the musicians aboard the fatal voyage. The fictional band members, who hail from across Europe, find a certain kinship on the vessel besides that of a life spent chasing musical dreams. Their lives, each treated almost as novellas, reflect the tragedies the war will soon bring to Europe. The whole event is played out metaphorically in the tales of simple people involved in tragic events.

About the Author:

Erik Fosnes Hansen, born in 1965, is the author of Psalm at Journey's End, a number-one bestseller in his native Norway. He lives in Oslo.
