Five internationally acclaimed writers consider the impact of the momentous
events of September 11th 2001. Ten years on, these authors use imaginative
letters to reflect on the consequences for Britain, America and the world.

Letter 1:

The first letter is from novelist and essayist Caryl Phillips, who was born
in St Kitts, grew up in Leeds and is now Professor of English at Yale
University. In his letter, Phillips imagines that his young nephew might
have to answer a history exam question about how the crisis of September 11th,
2001 determined American foreign and domestic policy. He gives an eye-witness
account of the day and those following, reflecting how the events changed him,
and his identity as a Resident Alien, someone who can live and work in the
United States, but is not an American citizen.

Letter 2:

The second letter is from Naomi Alderman who was working for a Manhattan law
firm in an office overlooking the World Trade Centre when the planes struck
the twin towers. Her experience that day led her to give up her career and
become a writer. But the character she imagines in her letter reflects an
even more profound change.

Letter 3:

Rather than creating a character writing to an imagined recipient, as the
other authors of The 9/11 Letters have, Joseph O'Neill remains steadfastly
himself, and addresses his letter directly to Radio 4 listeners. He reflects
on the way that, because of the mass coverage of the attack on the World
Trade Centre, the distance between those who were there as eye witnesses and
the rest of us collapsed with the Twin Towers. We were all 'there'. And so
America's response to the attacks had profound implications for us all.

Letter 4:

The fourth letter is by the American novelist Lionel Shriver whose book 'We
Need to Talk about Kevin' is now a modern classic. Shriver has given her
letter the title 'Prepositions' and it delineates precisely the meanings of
little words such as 'in', 'on','at' and 'near'. Her letter is to a woman
whose husband died in 9/11, from a woman whose husband died on 9/11. Ten
years on the consequences of those little differences on the lives of these
friends are huge, and vastly different.

Letter 5:

The imagined writer of Michael Morpurgo's letter is Ginny, who, when the
first plane smashed into the North tower was waiting on a bench in Central
Park for her husband to return from breakfast with their son, their first
meeting since a rift seven years previously. What happened on 11th September,
2001 rent many families - including Ginny's - asunder, yet it also brought
people together. Michael Morpurgo's letter, which he has titled 'A Proper
Family' movingly explores this ambiguity.
