He is the author of five previous books, including Liverpool Fantasy, Rockin' the Bronx, and Green Suede Shoes, as well as sixteen plays and musicals, including Hard Times and Rebel in the Soul. Kirwan also hosts Celtic Crush, a popular radio show on SiriusXM. We spoke to Larry about his own personal experiences during 9/11 and how they informed his new novel, how his book tells the story of regular people who were impacted by the tragedy, including members of the Irish-American community of Rockaway Beach and the Muslim community of South Brooklyn, and how New York City has been transformed in the twenty-years since the Towers fell.
