71OxOsMDdEL._UX250_There are several 9/11 truth thrillers in print. But until now, the only 9/11-truth-themed novel of high literary quality was Thomas Pynchon’s Bleeding Edge.

Victoria Alexander’s new novel Locus Amoenus is the best fictional treatment of 9/11 yet. It’s hilarious, darkly ironic, playful, deeply moving – and stands as an explosive controlled demolition of post-9/11 American culture.Unknown

Has 9/11 left us in the position of Shakespeare’s Hamlet, who knows but cannot act? I’ve asked that question more than once – but never as eloquently as Victoria Alexander does in this unforgettable book.

Victoria N. Alexander,  author of Locus Amoenus (2015),  Trixie(2010),  Naked Singularity (2003) and Smoking Hopes (1996),  is co-founder of the Dactyl Foundation in New York City.

With a Ph.D. in English specializing in Philosophy of Science,  Alexander also writes on science,  art and poetics in The Biologist’s Mistress: Rethinking Self-Organization in Art,  Literature and Nature (2011).

    The Strategic Brains Behind 9/11
    “Who controls the past controls the future: who controls the present controls the past”

    Part One

    Copyright Joe Vialls, 25 January 2003

    The events of 11 September 2001 have become a national obsession in America, but no one has ever worked out who the real perpetrators were. No serious analyst believes for a split second that Osama Bin Laden organized or directed this precision operation from a cave in the mountains of darkest Afghanistan, but beyond that obvious reality, most American analysts are incapable of objective analysis for a number of different reasons. If Americans really want to know who attacked New York two years ago, different analytical techniques must be applied.
