Editorial Reviews

Review

“Better and more comprehensive than any prior account.... Those of us who lived through those days will find the book cathartic; those rising generations who were too young to remember 9/11, or who weren’t yet born, will find it revelatory.” -- John Farmer, senior counsel to the 9/11 Commission and author of The Ground Truth

“With his rigorous research and moral clarity, Mitchell Zuckoff has provided us with an invaluable service. He has deepened our understanding of what happened on 9/11 and recorded the voices of the victims and the survivors. What’s more, he has ensured that we never forget.” -- David Grann, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Killers of the Flower Moon

“The 9/11 book we’ve been waiting for. A terrific storyteller and gifted researcher, Mitchell Zuckoff has rendered that world-changing day on a scale both intimate and monumental. This is narrative history at its very best.” -- Cokie Roberts, New York Times bestselling author and Emmy Award-winning journalist

“A triumph of great reporting and rigorous research, Fall and Rise by Mitchell Zuckoff recreates the tragic events of September 11, 2001, with harrowing precision and commendable empathy.” -- Daniel James Brown, New York Times bestselling author of The Boys in the Boat

“Both a deconstruction and a reconstruction, Fall and Rise is a definitive, perhaps the definitive, account of a day that will always live in infamy. In this forensic but also literary tour de force, Mitchell Zuckoff has not only created a moving and consequential work; he’s performed a national service.” -- Hampton Sides, bestselling author of In the Kingdom of Ice and On Desperate Ground

“Mitchell Zuckoff’s Fall and Rise: The Story of 9/11 brings readers back to those harrowing days in 2001 which forever scarred the American psyche and left a wound a mile deep in the heart of our nation. Every page shivers in stark remembrance of New York, Washington D.C., and Shanksville, Pennsylvania on those dark days. A masterpiece of historical scholarship!” -- Douglas Brinkley, author of American Moonshot: John F. Kennedy and the Great Space Race

“The horror and heroism of 9/11 are brought to life in this panoramic history. ... The result is a superb, harrowing retelling of this most dramatic of stories.” -- Publishers Weekly (starred review)

A meticulously delineated, detailed, graphic history of the events of 9/11 in New York City, at the Pentagon, and in Pennsylvania. ... Despite the story’s sprawling cast, which could have sabotaged a book by a less-skilled author, Zuckoff ably handles all of the complexities. ... [A]s contemporary history, Fall and Rise is a clear and moving success.” -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

From the Back Cover

Years in the making, this spellbinding, heartbreaking, and, ultimately, uplifting narrative is an indelible portrait of 9/11.

Fall and Rise masterfully weaves together the interrelated strands of the events in New York City; in Washington, D.C.; and in Shanksville, Pennsylvania, to create the first minute-by-minute history of that horrendous day.

In the hours, weeks, and months after 9/11, Mitchell Zuckoff, then a reporter for the Boston Globe, wrote about the attacks, the victims, and their families. After years of meticulous research and reporting on that infamous day, Zuckoff has filled Fall and Rise with the voices of the lost and the saved. The result is an utterly gripping book, a telling of some of the most intimate stories of people irrevocably affected by the events of that sunny Tuesday morning in September 2001: an out-of-work actor stuck in an elevator in the North Tower of the World Trade Center; the heroes deciding to take action aboard Flight 93; 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 in planes flying across the country to see loved ones or for work who suddenly found themselves among terrorists bent on murder.

Fall and Rise will open new avenues of understanding for all who think they know the story of 9/11, bringing to life—and in some cases, bringing back to life—the extraordinary ordinary people who experienced the worst day in modern American history.

Destined to be a classic, Fall and Rise is a testament to the human spirit as it triumphs over evil. This is a 9/11 book like no other.
