About the Author:

KRISTEN BREITWEISER is one of the nation's leading 9/11 activists. She appears frequently on national television as a commentator on matters related to terrorism and has been featured in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Vanity Fair, Oprah, Glamour, and Ms., and is a frequent contributor to The Huffington Post and other publications. Breitweiser was named Woman of the Year by both Ms. and Glamour, and won the 2005 Ron Ridenhour Truth-telling Award. She lives in New York City with her daughter.

From AudioFile:

Kristen Breitweiser's story is as compelling as she is controversial for failing to accept at face value the loss of her husband on 9/11. In WAKE-UP CALL, Breitweiser explains the motivation that compelled her and other 9/11 widows, sometimes called "The Jersey Girls," to become politically active and to criticize the Bush Administration for its alleged failings before and after the attacks. Breitweiser reads with intensity and a sense of purpose that translates superbly to audio. Oddly, at times Breitweister's voice makes her sound too plaintive, distracting from an otherwise strong performance for a narrator clearly new to audiobooks.
