‘Falling Man’ – Don DeLillo

Lausanne, April 2016

Overview

Keith escapes the Towers on 9/11. Reunites with his wife who is angry following the attacks. Incensed by the performance of the falling man, who dies, sort of unnoticed, at the end.

Thoughts

My brother recommended this a while ago and I wasn’t sure what to expect. Definitely more intellectual in style than my brain is possibly capable of coping with! I struggled in parts but the scene depicting the attack and the change of viewpoint within the scene was practically seamless and quite astounding by its effect.
