Read in September, 2006

Well reviewed, but I thought the characters were not well-defined and the tone was overly cynical. The focus is a group of New York intellectuals and their reaction to 9/11. Story begins before and the event is part of the narrative. Writing did not keep me engaged and I couldn't relate to the characters.
