      On the morning of September 11, 2001, freelance journalist
      Wicki Boyle was at home in the TriBeCa loft where she lives and
      works with her husband and two teenage children. She was an
      eyewitness to the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center
      and the ensuing horrors from close range. Her son's school is a
      few blocks from where the twin towers stood.

      This book is a series of moving personal essays written in the
      aftermath of the attacks--reactions, reflections, meditations--
      from the point of view of a mother who is also a longtime
      community resident and activist.
      Wickham Boyle, known in her wide circle of friends and
      acquaintances as Wicki, has lived in TriBeCa since 1976. She is
      formerly manager of the La MaMa Theater, a world-renowned
      experimental troupe in Lower Manhattan; she has an M.B.A. from
      Yale University's School of Organization and Management, and
      worked as a Wall Street stockbroker. She has written numerous
      articles on parenting, the arts, finance and travel for The New
      York Times, Ms., New York Magazine, Mode, Savoy, and Gotham.
      She was also one of the founders of Code Magazine.
