I wonder why that is? I don't think it's unique to 9/11 itself. Certain things are just so horrible that they require no imagination whatsoever. There are several classic nonfiction books about environmental problems: An Inconvenient Truth and Silent Spring, but how many environmental novels even get published, much less widely read?
Not the two I wrote, that's for sure. To get my tree-hugging butt published I had to cloak my green ideas in fantasy and romance and hope nobody noticed. (Shhh....don't tell anyone.)
So, read any good 9/11 books lately?
*I'd really like to read Don DeLillo's Falling Man, but only because I love Don DeLillo, not because I want to read about 9/11.
