Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"...collection of evocatively understated photographs showing all 70 of the city's affected firehouses...The pictures by 50 noted photographers show the firehouses in all attitudes of mourning and recovery, crowded with donated flowers, candles, homemade signs, and children's drawings... These displays are evidence of a popular rediscovery of firefighters, writes McCourt in his pitch-perfect foreword to the book. All of September 11's FDNY dead are listed delicately across the bottom of the pages of portraits of the lost men's firehouse beds, wall-posters, empty lockers, boots, and heat-darkened helmets, as well as their squad mates struggling on."--Library Journal.

Review:

"[A] collection of evocatively understated photographs showing all 70 of the city's affected firehouses....The pictures by 50 noted photographers show the firehouses in all attitudes of mourning and recovery, crowded with donated flowers, candles, homemade signs, and children's drawings....These displays are evidence of a popular rediscovery of firefighters, writes McCourt in his pitch-perfect foreword to the book....Taken together, [Brotherhood and The World Trade Center Remembered] express a reflective stillness before and after catastrophic horror. They are the class of the many publishing tributes and will serve any reader looking for memorial literature that doesn't patronize or wear a blood shirt." Library Journal

Synopsis:

"Adorned with votive candles, flowers and handwritten prayers, many of New York City's firehouses seem like red brick chapels since Sept. 11. "Brotherhood gives a glimpse into the firefighters' lives after the tragedy....A lively introduction by Frank McCourt reflects on the civil connection we feel with firefighters....The personalized spaces within the firehouses...resonate as powerfully as the portraits of the firefighters themselves.""--New York Times. "Some 300 images culled from more than 10,000 photos taken. More than 70 photographers...donated their services.""--Shoot.
