And when the city was attacked on 9/11 its writers began to do what writers do they began to look and feel and think and write began to struggle to process an event unimaginable before and even after it happened. The work of journalists appeared immediately in news reports commentaries and personal essays. But no single collection has yet recorded how New York writers of fiction poetry and dramatic prose have responded to 9/11.Now in 110 Stories Ulrich Baer has gathered a multi-hued range of voices that convey with vivid immediacy and heightened imagination the shock and loss suffered in September. From a stunning lineup of 110 renowned and emerging writers-including Paul Auster Lynne Sharon Schwartz Edwidge Danticat Vivian Gornick Phillip Lopate Dennis Nurkse Melvin Bukiet Susan Wheeler-these stories give readers not so much an analysis of what happened as the very shape and texture of a city in crisis what it felt like to be here the external and internal damage that the city and its inhabitants absorbed in the space and the aftermath of a few unforgettable hours. As A.M. Homes says in one of the book''s eyewitness accounts There is no place to put this experience no folder in the mental hard drive that says ''catastrophe.'' It is not something that you want to remember not something that you want to forget. This collection testifies to the power of poetry and storytelling to preserve and give meaning to what seems overwhelming. It showcases the literary imagination in its capacity to gauge the impact of 9/11 on how we view the world. Just as the stories of the World Trade towers were filled with people from all walks of life the stories collected here reflect New York''s true diversity its boundless complexity and polyglot energy its regenerative imagination and its spirit of solidarity and endurance.The editor�s proceeds will be donated to charity.
