This book argues that there are a number of contemporary novels that challenge the reductive 'us and them' binaries that have been prevalent not only in politics and the global media since 9/11, but also in many works within the emerging genre of '9/11 fiction' itself.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'In this book, Daniel O'Gorman offers a series of radically new interpretive frames for reading the crisis of 9/11 and its aftermath and the multiple terms in which texts have mediated that crisis. It should have a wide appeal and make a real impact, not least because it combines an impressively detailed knowledge of current work in this field with an understanding of just how that work can be usefully expanded and extended - to include writing from outside the United States and texts that, at first sight, appear to be unconcerned with 9/11. In short, it shifts the critical paradigms and offers signposts for future discussions of the subject - and, in doing so, makes itself indispensable. - Richard Gray, Fellow of the British Academy and author of After the Fall: American Literature Since 9/11
