Saved by the Boats by Julie Gassman
There are a lot of stories to come out of September 11, tales of tragedy and of bravery. Of kindness and generosity. This is a story I had not heard before. The narrative is simple annd that simplicity is a definite benefit. It lends clarity without the clinical feel that a simple narrative can sometimes have. Instead, Gassman's writing allows the natural emotion, both inherent in the situation and conveyed by quotes, to come through. It is a clear and concise recollection aided by simple line drawings.
