Overview

The tragedy of September 11, 2001 left us each trying to fill a uniquely unfamiliar void in our spirit with something that will make us whole again. Somehow we need to feel the experience in a way that following the news coverage just doesn't accomplish. Brian W. Vaszily found a way, and shares it with us in this brilliant anthology of thoughts, feelings, desires and dreams that were cut short on that terrible Tuesday. Through imagined characters he does what no news story or survivor's account can--he brings us into the lives of the departed--people so much like our friends, our families, and ourselves--as their final minutes play out. This uplifting work gently guides the reader beyond the tragedy of stone and steel to reaffirm what is truly important about being alive. [Cover art by Mary Z. Wolf]

Editorial Reviews

Sonia Bateman
Of the many, many books published since September 11, 2001, by experts and analysts as well as established and first-time authors, Beyond Stone and Steel represents a few of the most moving, thought-provoking and inspiring titles. As the sharp pain of September 11th's needless attack on our country settles into a dull ache, most of us are left shaking our heads and wondering whether the renewed "spirit of America" we experienced directly after the tragedy will last much longer.
Paul Lappen
Obviously, this is not easy or pleasant reading. For some, attempting to read this book is a permanent impossibility. For everyone else, this is a must read. If this book can help the grief process, if it can give those left behind even a glimpse of what was going through the minds of their loved ones just before the end, then Vaszily has done a Great Service. It is well worth reading.
Jean Peerenboom
While most Americans have gotten back to their routines, the images and feelings of 9/11 will continue to haunt us for generations..We move on, but we remember. Vaszily imagined details of those beyond the stone and steel "because I needed to, because no matter where else I've gone and what else I've tried to do since that first footage of Flight 175 heading for the South Tower, my mind keeps taking me inside those planes and buildings. I have full faith that I got their essence right," he said.
