Bibliodiscoteque Ep. 29 James Marrow’s Shambling Towards Hiroshima

In August of 1945, the United States dropped two bombs on the cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Those bombs stopped not only the War in the Pacific, but frightened the world so much that they have not been used in combat since.

The bombs also ushered in a sense of nihilism and anxiety that would permeate world consciousness and provide nightmare fuel for generations.  One such fear came to shore as a 300 foot metaphor for a nation coming to terms with destruction, but since then has become a comedic device, a cartoon, and eventually an action anti-hero.
