9/11 and the Literature of Terror

University of Gloucestershire Creative Writing lecturer Martin Randall’s monograph on cultural responses to the September 11th attacks has this month been released by Edinburgh University Press. It’s a thoughtful and complex book, but it’s also immensely readable; Randall manages to criticise and politicise a literature of memorialisation, with out ever diminishing or belittling the act of remembering. 9-11 and the Literature of Terror is likely to be the definitive book on its subject for some time to come.
