The Soul of Japan
In 2011, a massive earthquake sent a tsunami smashing into Japan, causing the country's greatest single loss of life since the Nagasaki bombing. Award-winning foreign correspondent Richard Lloyd Parry lived through the earthquake in Tokyo, spending the next six years reporting from the disaster zone. Today he discusses the Rathbones Folio Prize winning book Ghosts of the Tsunami, his heartbreaking account of the tragedy told via the stories of those who lived through it. Chaired by Fiammetta Rocco.
