"A meticulously edited and staggering book of 'living memory.'"
--Booklist (starred review)

"The 19 people whose stories are charted here range from artists and street vendors to paramedics, psychotherapists and priests; their collected conversations root the events of 9/11 in the context of their own lives--and the life of the city itself."

Many recent and new 9/11 books include quick snapshots of the human response to the tragedy, but this volume is especially recommended for the length (ten to 20 pages each) and thoughtfulness of the interviews.
