Ten of the best 9/11 novels

Porochista Khakpour is the author of Sons and Other Flammable Objects and The Last Illusion; both are 9/11 novels.

One of her top ten novels about 9/11, as shared at the Guardian in 2014:
Falling Man by Don DeLillo

DeLillo is one of my favorite authors, period, so it’s hard for me not to love everything he writes. This not my favourite DeLillo, but I still liked it. I love the simple premise of a lawyer who worked in the World Trade Centre surviving the attack and yet not quite surviving his life in the aftermath, intertwined with the narrative of a “falling man” performance artist.
Read about another book on the list.
