Anniversary brings avalanche of 9/11 books

The tenth anniversary of the September 11 attacks has unleashed a publishing avalanche, with a crush of new books about the fateful day and new editions of older works like Noam Chomsky’s 9-11.

Among the new accounts is After the Fall: New Yorkers Remember September 11 and the Years that Followed,” which sets out to show how New York changed after the attacks that brought down the World Trade Center.

The book presents interviews with hundreds of people from different parts of the city — first responders, taxi drivers, teachers, artists, religious leaders, immigrants — by Columbia University’s Oral History Research Office.

“The result is a remarkable time-lapse account of the city as it changed in the wake of 9/11,” its publisher The New Press says in an introduction to After the Fall.

Another new book is The Eleventh Day: The Full Story of 9/11 and Osama bin Laden by Anthony Summers and Robbyn Swan Drawing, which publisher Ballantine Books touts as “the first panoramic, authoritative look back at 9/11.”
