Reviews

'Powerful...the combination of banality and panic is quietly devastating. Affecting and disconcerting' Financial Times 'Beigbeder has set himself a mammoth task. Foreknowledge of the outcome removes any narrative tension and reality has outstripped fiction. Given these constraints, the author is remarkably successful.' Sunday Express 'Beigbeder's gripping apocalyptic novel! it is, on all levels, a stunning read.' Publisher's Weekly 'Beigbeder brings this off thanks to his electrifying intelligence and vaulting leaps of sympathy with all the victims - in the tower, the planes, and the unjust world beyond New York.' Independent
