  • Dissolute Kinship: A 9/11 Road Trip on June 16, 2011

    Antrobus' writing is phenomenal. I ran across this writer on several writers' sites and was immediately intrigued by his story. I'm glad I was. As an American, 9/11 will always occupy a tender spot in my heart. Who among us doesn't remember exactly what we were doing when the planes hit? It was particularly interesting to see that day from the outside. Antrobus is a Canadian who, on his own journey of healing, decided to visit New York on that fateful day. His descriptions bring back painful memories of my own view of that time. It's very real, and very poignant. I'd love to see Antrobus develop this short essay into a full length book. I'm willing to bet he could do it, and do it well. I look forward to more.
