    Winston Churchill said History is written by the victors This is true enough, but such an account is only half of the story What of the victims Is their story not integral to the narrative of history What of their motivations Their desires Their drives What of the narrator Is their perception of events any less valid because they stand outside Paul A Toth answers these charges with Airplane Novel Are the answers simple No The narrator makes no effort to disguise possible contradictions It is a n [...]

    This novel is built on a whole series of ingenious touches, from namingthe Twin Towers Cary Grant and Gary Cooper anagrams CG CG two, tallswaggering empty suits of Hollywood and outward peering icons, toemploying the South Tower itself as the unassailable epicenter of POV, tothe inside baseball expose of the current literary biz and its dullprocession of airplane novels It s all here, deftly braided anddevastatingly recounted.We know the tragedy Lord knows we know it Most impressive is therestra [...]

    Is Paul A Toth s new Airplane Novel the 9 11 novel Perhaps It certainly makes the short list We ve been seeking perspective,after all, and Toth delivers with a second tower omniscient narrator, the South Tower himself, who details his birth, life, and death from his singular, elevated vantage point Read an interview with the author in our August September issue shelfmediagroup staff_

    I ve read Chapter One on this site, and I firmly believe the author will prove correct in calling this the only 9 11 novel worth reading.



  7. Shelly says:
    Such a fascinating book By taking out the human emotion of 9 11 and telling the events from the point of view of the South Tower, Toth writes a book that is moving and quite possibly emotional than a memoir about said events Because instead of feeling sadness and hope, we re left feeling slightly uncomfortable The characters in the book are flawed, and even cruel unlike the heroic stories we hear about which makes the novel even compelling.

    This was alugubrious read for me kaleidoscopic views and observations consciously expressed in psychedelic streams of consciousness from the POS of the South Tower of the World Trade Center Mulitleveled and fascinating impossble to read quickly A definite work out for my puny brain A visceral churning of 9 11 Brilliant Original

    I found myself skipping through quite a bit, though I felt bad for doing so The language is strange and beautiful, but I m too much of a literal, type A person to digest it properly In other words, it s not you, it s me.

    Tremendously entertaining I love the way Mr Toth uses language Bravo
