GOLDSTEIN, Richard. Desperate Hours : The Epic Rescue of the Andrea Doria. (New York): John Wiley & Sons, (2001). Pp. (6),vii-ix,(1),-294. Illustrated in black and white. 8vo, blue cloth. A Night to Remember style recreation of the collision and sinking of the Italian liner, and of the ensuing rescue efforts, written by an experienced New York Times journalist. "Launched in 1951, the Andrea Doria proudly marked the resurgence of Italian maritime service. Her loss not only foreshadowed the end of the era of elegant lienrs, but reasserted the fragility of life for the millions still recovering from the war's destruction. In this fascinating book, Richard Goldstein re-creates the ill-fated voyage, from the passengers' departing at Genoa, totheir last evening highball in the Doria's lavish lounge, to the final, un believeable realization that catastrophe was imminent." - from the dj.
