A singular act of closure becomes the prelude for a vehement battle of wills in Amy Waldman's fascinating novel about ideals and ideologies. Ten years after the World Trade Center assaults of September 11th, a jury gathers to select a memorial for the Manhattan site. When they open the envelope that reveals the winning artist's name, the mood changes instantly. The honoree is Mohammad Khan, an American Muslim architect. Almost immediately, fierce controversy ensues; at its center is Khan's greatest defender, Claire Burwell, the panel's sole 9/11 widow. The Submission takes readers to unexpected places.
