O assunto é inevitável. O New York Times prevê uma enxurrada de títulos (entre 65 e 150). Tem para todos os gostos:
"They are books that run the gamut from historical examinations of the roots of today's terrorism ('Militant Islam Reaches America' by Daniel Pipes) to picture books about quilts inspired by the World Trade Center ('America From the Heart,' edited by Karey Bresenhan); from closely observed accounts of the recovery effort at ground zero ('American Ground: Unbuilding the World Trade Center' by William Langewiesche) to eclectic meditations on the future of civil liberties in the post-9/11 world ('It's a Free Country,' edited by Danny Goldberg, Victor Goldberg and Robert Greenwald).
"There are books about the victims, the rescue workers, the survivors and the terrorists; books about American intelligence failures and the heroism of the New York City Fire Department. There are books about how comic-book writers, college ministers, broadcast journalists, writers of young-adult literature, West Coast authors, feminists and child artists responded to that day. And there are books exploring the political, religious, psychological, technological and environmental consequences of the terrorist attacks. Many major news organizations have brought out books about Sept. 11; in the case of The New York Times, two books by the newspaper's reporters and photographers are being published, as well as at least four other books by individual staff members.
"At Barnes & Noble bookstores in New York, tables are stacked high with titles related to 9/11, a grouping that includes not just books about Sept. 11, but also picture-book tributes to the World Trade Center, poetry anthologies about New York, coffee-table books about the American flag and stocking-stuffer-type books on the inspirational words of former Mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani. Some of the books being published this fall have a bizarre keepsake quality to them - CBS News's 'What We Saw' comes with a DVD of the network's news coverage of the day - and some, like Philippe Petit's account of his 1974 high-wire walk between the towers ('To Reach the Clouds'), have only the most tangential connection to the events of Sept. 11."
