The award-winning novelist Christopher Priest (The Prestige) returns with a powerful meditation on loss and memory seen through the prism of 9/11.
Ben Matson lost someone he loved in the 9/11 attacks. Or thinks he did – no body has been recovered, and she shouldn’t have been on that particular plane at that time. But he knows she was. Nearly 20 years later a chance encounter rekindles Ben’s interest in the event, and leads Ben to question everything he thought he knew.
Thoughtful and impeccably researched, An American Story has been called ‘Eerily powerful’ (The Spectator) and ‘A Quiet Masterpiece’ (Guardian).
