Yes, most definitely. Great character-driven short stories about French peasants, with poems inbetween. Long live the cocodrille.

Book Review “Hiroshima” John Hersey (1st published 1946)

Yes. I should have been made to read this at school. The strength of will of some of the (6) people focussed on in the book is astonishing. In addition, below is the original USA programme ‘This is Your Life’ featuring one of those people, Kiyoshi Tanimoto.  At around 15 minutes, just after Tanimoto has described seeing people with their skin hanging off, as a ‘procession of ghosts’, he is introduced to Captain Robert Lewis, with a flourish of harp music and audience applause. Lewis was co-pilot of ‘Enola Gay‘, the plane from which the atomic bomb was dropped onto Hiroshima. Apparently he had been drinking. It’s a bizarre and uncomfortable scene, particularly as the show is interrupted now and then with adverts for Hazel Bishop’s nail polish. Further below is a video from the USAF made in 1946, showing the extent of burn damage to some of the bomb victims.
