William Langewiesche is a correspondent for the Atlantic Monthly, where this book originated as a three-part series.
'In cool, precise, powerful prose, Langewiesche tells the hard truths and harsh realities of Ground Zero.' THE TIMES 'the first outstanding literary work to engage with the Manhattan catastrophe ... The result deserves to rank as a classic of frontline reportage. Langewiesche forsakes any sentimentality or sensationalism in favour of painstaking research, shrewd observation, and a darkly resonant prose ... With AMERICAN GROUND, the literature of ruins has acquired a fresh landmark. Without bluster or bragging, it depicts the site as a microcosm of the society the jijackers sought to undermine.' BOYD TONKIN, INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY
