Terrorism and counter narratives: Don de Lillo and the New York imaginary
Peter Brooker, pages -

Abstract

Brooker explores the influence of the September 11 terrorist attacks on a New York urban imaginary, particularly through the medium of Don DeLillo’s In The Shadow of No Towers. He suggests the potential effect of nostalgia in provoking patriotism and explores the scope of the urban imaginary, by investigating different types of post-9/11 fiction. Through this, the article suggests those counternarratives through which New York and the United States can reclaim itself.
