At Last Someone Does Justice to the Tania Head Story and...

..it’s no surprise it’s the great New York columnist Jim Dwyer.

If you read my post below you’ll understand how resonant and important I think this story is. On its own and as a way of understanding post-9/11 culture. How cannily Tania Head, the 9/11 “survivor” fabulist diagnosed what a sentimentalizing culture wanted to hear and served it up on a big phony platter.

Buit Dwyer comes up with the kind of brilliant parallel–Lillian Hellman and “Julia”–that makes me incredibly envious as a writer. Don’t miss it.
