Europa Editions is reissuing Beryl Bainbridge’s “Every Man for Himself,” which is set on the ship. Reviewing the book in The Times, Janet Kaye said, “it is difficult to imagine a more engrossing account of the famous shipwreck than this one.” About the novel’s snobbish first-class passengers, she wrote: “And we begin to care about them, almost despite ourselves. For we realize that they have mistaken imperviousness for invulnerability. They believe that, like the Titanic, they are indestructible.”
