Nine Books on 9/11


Today’s Huffington Post features 9 Unforgettable Books on 9/11, a list compiled by Peter Steinberg, co-founder of the website flashlightworthybooks.com.

“As someone who adopted New York as my home just two years before 9/11 -- and who watched the first tower fall with his own eyes,” writes Steinberg, “I debated whether to create this book list. In the end though it deserves coverage like any other topic; ignoring it won't make it go away. I think that no matter your literal or emotional distance from Ground Zero on September 11, 2001 there's at least one book on this list for you.”

Here is a sampling from Steinberg’s list:

102 Minutes: The Untold Story of the Fight to Survive Inside the Twin Towers by Kevin Flynn and Jim Dwyer

Firehouse by David Halberstam

American Ground: Unbuilding the World Trade Center by William Langwiesche

The 9/11 Report: A Graphic Adaptation by Ernie Colon, Sid Jacobson

Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safron Foer


I would add one more for D.C. metro readers:

Firefight: Inside the Battle to Save the Pentagon on 9/11 by Patrick Creed
