Marshall, Michael. The
Straw Men. (New York: Jove Books, 2002). [A very dark, grim,

and Macintosh Powerbooks.]
Whitehead, Colson. The
Intuitionist, (Anchor Books, Jan 2000). Read
[See also Colson Whitehead's poignant essay about New York City, "Lost
and Found," published two months after the World Trade
Center attack, in the November 11, 2001 issue of the New York
magazine. Comments on this essay and many other articles, essays,
and writings about
the World Trade Center attack can be found on the World
Trade Center page of this website.]
