Startled, Honest Reflections
Trauma at Home is the most thoughtful collection of responses to September 11th I have seen. Every essay is a reminder of what I think we've begun to forget, as individuals and a nation: how the event startled us out of our ordinary methods of understanding and acting in the world. The book begins with Toni Morrison's elegy, 'The Dead of September 11': 'But I would not say a word until I could set aside all I know or believe about nations, wars, leaders, the governed and ungovernable.' Judith Greenberg has collected a remarkable number of essays that find their authors in the process of figuring out how to think once they've been startled out of all they know or believe.
