We first read this reconstruction during the year following the 9/11 attacks. We found it difficult to read for its level of detail, its emotional content. Rereading it, we admire the clarity of structure, the way Maraniss bookends the piece with the stories of Steve Miller and Edmund Glazer. Maraniss manages to follow many characters and still create a sense of arc, of destination.
