"Filled with first hand stories and anecdotes that provide background information about the images...van Agtmael also discusses his own shift from an eager young man ready for war to the anger and numbness he felt after experiencing war firsthand." - SLATE
"... a hauntingly beautiful work, which includes intimate diary-like texts by Mr. van Agtmael..." NEW YORK TIMES LENS BLO
"Committed to words too, van Agtmael has generously captioned his photographs in the book and includes other text ranging from diary entries to graffitti and transcribed conversations." - THE LITERATE LENS
"Disco Night Sept 11 is not a photobook you can browse for five minutes at a time every so often - it requires proper commitment...Van Agtmael's book is also the type of photobook you read from cover to cover - where each caption, even if it seems trivial, has its significance..." - BRITISH JOURNAL OF PHOTOGRAPHY
"Van Agtmael's photographs...seem to recognize a dissonance between reality and the way we imagine it, between life and the way we imagine it, between war and the way we imagine it." - VICE
"The book's arc is huge...Here then is what is going to be one of the defining photo books of this era, an era that in all kinds of ways is still with us - and it will be until we come to terms with it. Highly recommended." - JORG M. COLBERG, CONSCIENTIOUS
"He's telling, in parallel, two complex stories often told separately: that of fighting a war and that of coming home...In short, this is a smart, important photo book, one that pulls you in easily and makes it difficult for you to put it down." - MOTHER JONES
"Peter van Agtmael's new book...explores the gulf that opens up between those fighting our wars and the culture they've sacrificed so much for." NBC NEWS
"Disco Night Sept 11 is a magnificent hybrid work. Part war story and part family album, it shares
with the latter the fabric cover, relatively small photographs, unfolding pages, captions, and it even achieves the same cathartic effect, for soldiers, their families, the United States and the author Peter van Agtmael himself." - L'OEIL DE LA PHOTOGRAHIE
"From the heat of battle to playing with their children back home, striking images capture the emotional trauma of war on soldiers." - DAILY
"This book is an accomplishment to stand in awe of and a work of art to inspire, though the inspiration may be fear, sadness, or even anger the discovery of this other, more honest dimension of the realities of war on soldiers, on the native citizens where war is waged, and on the families those soldiers return to." - PHOTO-EYE
