by Charles Bernstein, Mimi Gross
Beginning on September 11, 2001, Mimi Gross filled five sketchbooks with ink drawings made on the downtown streets, often working in the dark, directly at Ground Zero. Simultaneously, Charles Bernstein was also writing in response to the events of 9/11. Gross proposed a collaboration after hearing Bernstein read his new writings at the Zinc Bar in New York City a few weeks later. Gross and Bernstein together made a selection of images and text for the book.
