Reflections on Don Delillo's Falling Man (2007)
My Attempt to Rekindle a Love for Good Drama


The world is an unsettling place these days. We're just not getting along anymore; we're fighting with each other, on the streets, social media and probably in our homes. Never before in our recent history have we've grown so apart in the same country, the same family and sometimes even the same religion. Many have retreated, in a sense, into the superhero realm or some other form of passive entertainment. Myself, included, I think. Over time, personal problems pile up, sensitive areas do as well and we naturally avoid reading, thinking or even interacting with people in the real, human world of living. Perhaps some wounds have finally healed and I'm ready to confront drama again. So I decided to read a post-9/ll novel called Falling Man by Don Dellilo.
