September 11, 2001. It was the worst day in modern American history. This is a mesmerizing, minute-by-minute account of that day. The horror. The heroism. The humanity. Boston Globe reporter Mitchell Zuckoff was there in the days and months after the attacks. He wrote about the victims and their families. Now, many years later, we hear the intimate stories of the people most affected by the events of that day—again or for the very first time: an out-of-work actor stuck in an elevator in the North Tower of the World Trade Center; the heroes aboard Flight 93 deciding to take action; a veteran trapped in the inferno in the Pentagon; the fire chief among the first on the scene in sleepy Shanksville; a team of firefighters racing to save an injured woman and themselves; and the men, women, and children flying across country who suddenly faced terrorists bent on murder. No one knows the full story of 9/11. Fall and Rise opens new avenues of understanding by giving voices to the lost and the saved. It’s shocking, moving and inspiring. It’s important.
