Don DeLillo is one of the best contemporary novelists around. This superbly written quote from Falling Man his new novel about 9/11,

“The world was this as well, figures in windows a thousand feet up, dropping into free space, and the stink of fuel fire, and the steady rip of sirens in the air. The noise lay everywhere they ran, stratified sound collecting around them, and he walked away from it and into it at the same time.”
