In the aftermath of the September 11 terror attacks, the political situation in both the United States and abroad has often been described as a state of exception: an emergency situation in which the normal rule of law is suspended. In such a situation, the need for good decisions is felt ever more strongly. This book investigates the aesthetics, ethics, and politics of various decisions represented in novels published around 9/11: Martels Life of Pi, Eugenides Middlesex, Coetzees Disgrace, and Sebalds Austerlitz.
