Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Poetry. Non-Fiction. Written during the three months following September 11, this book catches the first, passionate reactions of our country's finest writers to the matrix of events that will continue to intensify in the American conscience, and that will inevitably define the dawn of the new century. Contributors include Ai, Wendell Berry, Lucille Clifton, Tess Gallagher, Kimiko Hahn, Joy Harjo, Michael Heller, Denis Johnson, Erica Jong, Maxine Hong Kingston, W.S. Merwin, Naomi Shihab Nye, Robert Pinsky, Stanley Plumly, Ishmael Reed, Scott Russell Sanders, Joanna Scott, Ruth Stone, Henry Taylor, John Updike, John A. Williams, Terry Tempest Williams, and more than 100 more of our most revered writers, representing the diverse spectrum of backgrounds, approaches and attitudes that comprise the American literary landscape.

Synopsis:

Over 125 American writers reflect on September 11 in its immediate aftermath.

Synopsis:

This book, which is unlike any other in our literature, was written during the three months following September 11, 2001. The editor wanted to catch the first, passionate reactions of many of our finest creative writers to a matrix of grievous events that would continue to intensify in the American memory as have few others. In September 11, 2001: American Writers Respond, more than 125 fiction writers, poets, and essayists are seized in ways that often surprise themselves; together they offer a revelation of our collective psyche during a perilous time.
