Someday This Pain Will Be Useful to You by Peter Cameron

“Neither young adult literature, nor even really a coming-of-age story, Someday This Pain Will Be Useful to You is most surprisingly of all the subtlest September 11 novel yet written (if one can speak of the September 11 novel as a genre, and I think, with respect, that one can).” From Lorrie Moore’s review from The New York Review of Books.
