A Trenchant Literary Interpretation of American Culture and its Devolution in the Wake of September 11th: This innovative tale offers a crossfire of narrators, who guide the reader through their own interpretations, first, of their lives in a typical American city and then of the horrific tidal wave of panic inflicted by the geographically removed attacks of September 11th. By sharing their innermost thoughts, deeds and misdeeds, these trustworthy and deceitful narrators explore the isolationist, nationalist and anti-intellectual tendencies with which people disengaged themselves from proactive thought in the midst of this particularly pivotal event in history. Richly detailed characters form a labyrinthine collage of philosophical contemplation, socio-political criticism and darkly sharp humor in order to survey the atrophy of individual thought in a country where panic and comfort in consumption are the only modes of behavior endorsed by the mainstream culture.

From the Author:

While not limited to merely being a diatribe on the failings of the American Left, Right and Center before and after Sept. 11th, this work intends to serve as a black box recording for the cultural nosedive that that the United States is finding itself in. Following that metaphor, it is my hope for this message to be played over the speakers in flight, prompting the passengers to be shaken from complacency and to not accept their fate obliviously.

About the Author:

Matt Rosencrance was born in Landstuhl, Germany in 1979, but spent his childhood up and down the East Coast of the United States. After traveling to Israel in the winter of 1996 and studying in Spain during the fall of 1998, human social dynamics became major points of interest for him. For that reason his studies at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro focused chiefly on languages and culture. In December of 2001, he completed his university studies with a B.A. in Spanish and German languages and literatures with accompanying minors in Cultural Anthropology and Developmental Psychology.
