There is September 11 and then there are the days after, and finally the years.
Falling Man begins in the smoke and ash of the burning towers and traces the aftermath of this global tremor in the intimate lives of a few individuals.
Theirs are lives choreographed by loss, grief and the enormous force of history.

Comments about Falling Man:
Typical of DiLillo's cold, poetic and intelligent style but in the end rather meaningless. No great human insights into what must be the most talked about event of modern history. The two main characters amount to a series of quirks, nothing more. I finished the novel knowing nothing about them.
