Synopsis: "...collection of evocatively understated photographs showing all 70 of the city's affected firehouses...The pictures by 50 noted photographers show the firehouses in all attitudes of mourning and recovery, crowded with donated flowers, candles, homemade signs, and children's drawings... These displays are evidence of a popular rediscovery of firefighters, writes McCourt in his pitch-perfect foreword to the book. All of September 11's FDNY dead are listed delicately across the bottom of the pages of portraits of the lost men's firehouse beds, wall-posters, empty lockers, boots, and heat-darkened helmets, as well as their squad mates struggling on."--Library Journal.

From Library Journal: There could not be a greater contrast than between the cold engineering that leveled the twin towers and the response of the 343 New York firefighters who rushed in to their deaths. Those men are honored in this collection of evocatively understated photographs showing all 70 of the city's affected firehouses, from Red Hook's company of "Happy Hookers" to Harlem's "Fire Factory." The pictures by 50 noted photographers show the firehouses in all attitudes of mourning and recovery, crowded with donated flowers, candles, homemade signs, and children's drawings (some from as far as Mississippi) that have helped buoy up the survivors in the months since the attack. These displays are evidence of a popular rediscovery of firefighters, writes McCourt in his pitch-perfect foreword to the book. All of September 11's FDNY dead are listed delicately across the bottom of the pages of portraits of the lost men's firehouse beds, wall-posters, empty lockers, boots, and heat-darkened helmets, as well as their squad mates struggling on. The iconic buildings in which these rescuers died were themselves memorialized in last fall's The World Trade Center Remembered, a thinking-person's remembrance with an elegant text by architecture critic Paul Goldberger. In that work, the towers lord over the island with their old swagger; the blue-sky backgrounds are not yet ominous, the buildings' steel skins not yet gashed and smoking. Taken together, these two books express a reflective stillness before and after catastrophic horror. They are the class of the many publishing tributes and will serve any reader looking for memorial literature that doesn't patronize or wear a blood shirt. [Proceeds from Brotherhood go to the New York Firefighters 911 Relief Fund. Ed.] Nathan Ward, "Library Journal"
