April Books & Wine - Your 9/11 experience sounds pretty similar to mine, only I live upstate, so no commuter parents. We also were not dismissed early BUT I remember the entire day we had the news on.

I love how you describe Love Is The Higher Law. I mean, I’ve read it all ready, but I want to go back and read it over again, because it truly is a book to be savored and to be read again and again.

Stepping Out of the Page - Great, thoughtful review! I read this book last year, around 9/11 and I absolutely loved it, it really effected me. I hope your review makes more people pick this one up – I’m sure it will. 🙂

Estelle - Mands, This is definitely so different from his style in WGWG. Hope you’ll give it a shot when you have a chance. 🙂

VeganYANerds - I feel similarly to you, I don’t know anyone who was directly affected by 9/11 but I do remember being woken in the early hours of the morning and watching it on tv with my family and having to go to school and thinking about all the people in NY who must have been feeling so scared and upset.

Like you, the only book of David’s I’ve read is Will Grayson but I definitely want to read more.
