"...collection of evocatively understated photographs showing all 70 of the city's affected firehouses...The pictures by 50 noted photographers show the firehouses in all attitudes of mourning and recovery, crowded with donated flowers, candles, homemade signs, and children's drawings... These displays are evidence of a popular rediscovery of firefighters, writes McCourt in his pitch-perfect foreword to the book. All of September 11's FDNY dead are listed delicately across the bottom of the pages of portraits of the lost men's firehouse beds, wall-posters, empty lockers, boots, and heat-darkened helmets, as well as their squad mates struggling on."--Library Journal.
“Brotherhood gives a glimpse into firefighters’ lives after the tragedy....A lively introduction by Frank McCourt reflects on the civil connection we feel with firefighters....The personalized spaces within the firehouses...resonate as powerfully as the portraits of the firefighters themselves.” —New York Times. “Some 300 images from more than 70 photographers ... [who] donated their services.”—Shoot. “Document[s] the outpouring of affection for New York’s firefighters.”—Photo District News.
