Post-9/11 Fiction


Post-9/11 Fiction
Courtyard Book Chats downtown, August 15, 2006
presented by Kit Keller, Nebraska Library Commission

As a writer, too, I have been struggling with what my writing has to offer in a world where terrors are now color-coded, where the dust from our tumbled-down towers is still floating in the air, where most recently a hurricane has created our very own refugee situation. “It’s just no something we’re used to,” a baffled local official in New Orleans being interviewed on NPR noted. “I mean if we were in a third world country, we’d be used to this.” I heard much the same remark about terrorism on our own shores after Sept. 11.
