To Kill the Other
by Danuta Hinc
Taher examined his reflection in the airplane's lavatory mirrorólong shadows cast down in sharp strokesóand suddenly felt exhausted...It's okay, he thought, seeing the reflection of his lips move. He closed his eyes, faced the ceiling, and took a deep breath. It's okay, he whispered. It's okay.
How does a sensitive, scholarly boy from an affluent Egyptian family become a hijacker? Set in the two decades leading up to the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center, To Kill the Other tells the story of Taher and his spiritual transformation from an innocent young boy into a ruthless, disillusioned conformist. Exploring the circumstances and choices that shaped him, To Kill the Other builds toward an unimaginable act of mass terror in which Taher finally confronts who and what he has become.
'Very few people have written about the attack of 9/11 in a perspective of hijackers. Hinc has written a lucid, utterly gripping speculation expending our understanding of who the hijackers were and who motivated them. She provides an important new perspective to this event which has transformed our lives.'
óRabbi Martin Siegel, author of Amen: The Diary of Rabbi Martin Siegel.
'Hinc tells her story masterfully by weaving multiple perspectives, revealing the core of human sorrow and the transcendent quality of compassion.'
óChukwudi Okpala, author of The Uncircumcised
