The texts selected for analysis in this chapter provide representative transpositions of political and journalistic discourses into fiction. They are divided into two categories: narratives that refer directly to the 9/11 attacks—such as Iain Banks’s Dead Air (2002)—and narratives about the most important outcome of the attacks: the global ‘war on terror’. This chapter comprises analysis of the political speeches, quoted verbatim or imaginary, present in David Hare’s documentary play Stuff Happens (2004), and the influence of the media on the 2005 novel of modernist inspiration, Saturday, by Ian McEwan, in order to make a case for neorealism at work in 9/11 fiction.
