Staff Pick by comrade: LS

A dark and slightly surreal fictionalized biography of Mohammed Atta, one of the 9/11 terrorists. Using the actual man's masters thesis as a point of departure, this novella posits the 9/11 attacks as much as a critique of Western architecture as religious/political statement. A very brave and excellent first work by Kopek.
