"There's a Hole in the City," by Richard Bowes (2005): 7.75
- Based partially on my own Axim of Evil [98% of all art made about and/or in the immediate 2 years following 9/11 is garbage] I was very prepared to hate this, to find it trite and half-exploitative and half-reverential, filled with all those fucked-up post-9/11 feelings of misdirected misery and stumbling patriotism. and, partially this was there [esp. in the cringey moment when he makes sure to point out his exaggerated politeness to Muslim street vendors, as if, sure, he does know their basically guilty, but look how I'm "getting over that"]. but, somehow it moved above that, even for me, predisposed to suspicion [i mean, i groaned when I read the description]. it's success probably comes from redirecting the focus from the event to other aspects of city history--making it about an unleashing of generational urban pain, somehow locked into place. smart move. and, also, the writing wasn't bad. understated in prose amidst the actual emotions being expressed. recalling his relationship with mags and Geoff in the young college kids budding ménage kind of rang hollow for me, although I could understand others getting behind it

"The Trentino Kid," by Jeffrey Ford (2003): 7
- Effective enough little ghost story, but largely in the scene-specific particulars of ghost recognition and grappling with the immediate consequences thereof rather than anything that might make this a “story” in the more conventional, literary ways.
