Ghosts of the Tsunami by Richard Lloyd Parry
"Some books are interesting mostly because of their subject matter - they might be indifferently written but they are gripping solely by virtue of the story they are recounting.

This book, about the 2011 tsunami in Japan, is about something inherently " Read more of this review »

“Tapi, Indonesia menyimpan terlalu banyak rahasia. Dan keanekaragamannya pun amat kelewatan...”
Richard Lloyd Parry, In the Time of Madness: Indonesia on the Edge of Chaos

“Sebagai republik yang merdeka, Indonesia berusia lima puluh tahun, tetapi kedengaran lebih mirip sebuah kekaisaran tak terkendali daripada sebuah negara bangsa modern.”
Richard Lloyd Parry, In the Time of Madness: Indonesia on the Edge of Chaos

“I asked him what kind of consolation a priest could offer to people such as the parents of Okawa school, and he was quiet for a moment. “You have to be careful,” he said. “You have to be very careful in doing this to people who have lost their children. It takes long months, long years—it might take a whole lifetime. It might be the very last thing that you say to someone. But perhaps all that we can tell them in the end is to accept. The task of acceptance is very hard. It’s up to every single person, individually. People of religion can play only a part in achieving that—they need the support of everyone around them. We watch them, watch over them. We remember our place in the cosmos, as we work. We stay with them, and we walk together. That’s all we can do.”
Richard Lloyd Parry, Ghosts of the Tsunami: Death and Life in Japan's Disaster Zone
