George Gene Gustines[September 11, 2001] is fraught with so many emotional and political landmines for countless people that a critic might hesitate to review such an account, especially if the work is less than stellar. Fortunately, American Widow is very good—largely because of the author's willingness to address difficult issues, including her anger at her husband and her frustration in dealing with relief agencies that at times alternated between being overeager and counterproductive…throughout the book, which is black and white with bursts of sea-foam blue and the occasional red and blue, Ms. Choi's illustrations are sharply observed. She does a great job of distinguishing a large cast of characters and settings.
