Six Survived To Tell What Happened
I find it interesting that, even though this is a serious look at the consequences of atomic warfare, it is basically impossible to tell from the cover art that it takes place in Japan.
Hiroshima tells the stories of six survivors of the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima, covering a period of time immediately prior to and one year after the atomic bomb was dropped on August 6, 1945. It was originally published in The New Yorker. Although the story was originally scheduled to be published over four issues, the entire August 31, 1946 edition was dedicated to the article. The article and subsequent book are regarded as one of the earliest examples of the New Journalism, in which the story-telling techniques of fiction are adapted to non-fiction reporting.
