Friday Find: Literary Responses to 9/11

New York magazine has just published a pretty remarkable double issue framed around the tenth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. I haven’t managed to get through the entire issue yet–I’m reading it slowly.

But there’s one item I want to be sure to point out to you: a representation of how a selection of “artists, writers, musicians, filmmakers, video-game designers, and quilters responded to the attacks.”

Look for fiction in magenta.

And if you happen to be interested in the topic of literary response to 9/11—and how I was thinking about it not too long after the events of that day—AND you have access to some academic databases, you may want to look up my article, “Keeping Silent? Writing Fiction After September 11,” which appeared in Queen’s Quarterly in 2004 (111:1).

Have a safe, peaceful, and happy holiday weekend.
