If I told my friends I was reading _A Night to Remember_ I suspect most of them would think it was erotica.

Actually, it is Walter Lord's brilliant narrative of the Titanic sinking. He wrote it in the fifties. At that time there were still many people alive who had been there when the big ship sank, and Mr. Lord got his best material by the unusual method of actually going and talking to them.

His was the first big Titanic book. In my opinion, _A Night to Remember_ and the movie they made from it are still the only works of the Titanic that are really worth your time.
