From the Publisher
"In this original and affecting account of New York after the September 11 attacks, Scott Malcomson draws us back to a time of extraordinary clarity and exceptional confusion about America's sense of itself and its place in the world. By doing so, he helps to make sense of where we were and where we have now arrived. This is a cathartic and honest work." -- Steve Coll, author of Ghost Wars and The Bin Ladens, a correspondent for the New Yorker, and president of the New America Foundation
"With the intelligence and decency of a cosmopolitan who also loves his country, Scott L. Malcomson helps us to understand both the local human consequences and the global political significance of the terrorist attacks of 9/11 and the attack on UN headquarters in Baghdad two years later. Generation's End is a deeply human reflection on his own responses, as a husband and father, a friend and a colleague, a journalist and an editor, and as an American and a citizen of the world." -- Kwame Anthony Appiah, author of The Honor Code and Cosmopolitanism and president of PEN American Center
"Generation's End returns us to a harrowing period in all its confusion and loss, but this time we have a guide. Malcomson's brave investigations lead us to a new, keen understanding of how the early years after 9/11 still shape our world today." -- Colson Whitehead, author of The Colossus of New York
"So much has happened in the decade since September 11 that it is hard to recollect how the world seemed back then. Generation's End, an evocative memoir of how our collective consciousness has evolved since then, helps us better understand ourselves today." -- Francis Fukuyama, Olivier Nomellini Senior Fellow, Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies
