The Woman Who Wasn't There : The True Story of an Incredible Deception
"The Woman Who Wasn't There is a riveting real-life mystery, a probe into the inner depths of humanity. This is a page-turner for every American" (Star Tribune, Minneapolis). Tania Head's astonishing account of her experience on September 11, 2001, was a tale of loss and recovery, of courage and sorrow, of horror and inspiration. It transformed her into one of the great victims and heroes of that tragic day. But there was something very wrong with Tania's story--a terrible secret that would break the hearts and challenge the faith of all those she claimed to champion. Told with the unique insider perspective of Angelo J. Guglielmo, Jr., a filmmaker shooting a documentary on the efforts of the Survivors' Network, and previously one of Tania's closest friends, The Woman Who Wasn't There is the story of one of the most audacious and bewildering quests for acclaim in recent memory--one that poses fascinating questions about the essence of morality and the human need for connection at any cost.

Taut and riveting as a mystery novel, except that it's all true. The tale of Tania Head, the celebrity survivor is a fascinating psychological study of the best and worst of human nature. In their deft, compelling narrative, Robin Gaby Fisher and Angelo J. Guglielmo, Jr. slowly, but inexorably, lift the curtain on one of the saddest, senseless, and yet most spectacular frauds in recent history. You will not be able to put this book down until you finish the last sentence, and when you do, you will shake your head in wonder. --Amy Ellis Nut, author of Shadows Bright as Glass and Pulitzer Prize-winning writer for the Star-Ledger"
