Theater of WarTheater of War is a non-fictional piece about 911 and how the government, as well as the nation, perceived events, our leader, and the inevitable conflict at our hands.  Although Lapham’s work goes into great length and discursiveness, he is cognizant and assured.  As Annie Dillard, a Pulitzer Prize winning author herself, has said, Lewis Lapham is “one of our most brilliant writers and thinkers.”
