“The Submission” imagines the uproar when a Muslim American architect is selected as the winner of an anonymous competition to design a memorial in the aftermath of a 9/11-like terrorist attack. Author Amy Waldman talks to MetroFocus about how the so-called “Ground Zero mosque” controversy affected her narrative and the roles Vietnam Memorial designer Maya Lin and real-life 9/11 memorial designer Michael Arad played in her novel.
