When Bobby McIlvaine died in the Twin Towers on September 11, 2001, his loved ones spun off in radically different directions, each mourning in his or her own distinct—and often highly idiosyncratic—way. Twenty years later, Jennifer Senior, a family friend and award-winning reporter, revisits the McIlvaines, examines their present lives, and contemplates what grief really means, in all its jagged complexity. An unflinching essay on mourning and recovery in the wake of an inconceivable tragedy, Senior’s 2022 Pulitzer Prizewinning feature On Grief: Love, Loss, Memory is now published as an Atlantic Edition, a line of books featuring long-form journalism by Atlantic writers, drawn from contemporary articles or classic storytelling from the magazine’s 165-year archive.
