Reading Falling Man, one often feels that DeLillo’s formerly superlative intuition has become a form of ignorance: he dangles uncertainly between what he knows of that day from pictures and what of it he predicted in his novels.

The New York Review of Books pans Falling Man, but in the nicest possible way.

The New York Review of Books hits it out of the park this week with four articles to read this beautiful Friday evening:

* George Bush’s America and the calamities of empire
* a review of Michael Chabon’s latest
* all about Einstein
* and (coincident with the book I’m reading this week, Going Postal) the specter haunting your workplace.
