Brick Lane and Cultural Overlap

“It feels to Nazneen as though they have survived something together, as a family.” I thought it was interesting how Ali included 9/11 in the book. Though I knew it had been broadcasted worldwide, I didn’t think that it would have a similar impact. When it happened there was a rallying of the American people to be together in this tragedy so to see the same thing happen on a smaller scale abroad is interesting. What also surprised me was how I felt reading about it. Living through it, I didn’t understand what was happening and everything seems kind of blurry. It didn’t feel connected to me but reading about it, for once it felt like a tragedy to me, which I guess just goes to show the power off literature and words, like Chanu kept telling Shahana.
