Description

The strongest earthquake in Japanese history hit the Tohoku region on March 11, 2011, and the resulting tsunami killed over 15,000 people. The world watched as the Fukushima Dai-ichi (Fukushima #1, or 1-F) nuclear plant, its safety equipment drowned by the tsunami, experienced a slow and catastrophic meltdown. One of the clean-up workers tells his story in Ichi-F.

A singular insider's look at an event that destroyed a region and changed how the world sees nuclear power. This matter-of-fact depiction of the daily life of a nuclear cleanup worker is unique among disaster memoirs.
