About this item

This study examines representations of social processes in New York and London in post-9/11 fiction involving plots associated with that day: Jonathan Safran Foer's Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, Mohsin Hamid's The Reluctant Fundamentalist, H.M. Naqvi's Home Boy, Amy Waldman's The Submission, Ian McEwan's Saturday, Don DeLillo's Falling Man, Teju Cole's Open City, Chris Cleave's Incendiary, Monica Ali's Brick Lane, and Joseph O'Neill's Netherland. It considers how 9/11 is perceived and dealt with in the spatial sense of moving through the city and the new urban reality, and how characters attach emotions, memories, and feelings to a specific place or city and transform it into their personal space, as well as how geographical, social, and political characteristics of a city connect to representations of individuals to address trauma, memory, and the construction of the Other after 9/11.
