A Bizarre Tale from the September 11 Attacks on the Twin Towers

The Woman Who Wasn't There
 The True Story of an Incredible Deception 

by Robin Gaby Fisher and Angelo J. Guglielmo, Jr.

What Tania Head told everyone was on September 11th she stood in the 78th floor Sky Lobby of the World Trade Center when Flight 175 crashed right into it. From there she wove a remarkable story of her near fatal injuries and the wonderful man who saved her.

She shared her story and her miraculous escape with many, including those in a survivors' support group. Her charismatic personality and her desire to help others who were suffering post-traumatic symptoms charmed everyone. 

Because of her amazing story and strong presence she helped make some significant changes for the survivors.

Tania Head's story was a figment of her imagination but it is amazing how long it took for the deception to unravel.

As I read through this fascinating tale, I couldn't help but wonder if this woman suffered from a dual personality or just a grandiose delusion brought on by an overactive imagination? The clues are all there though no diagnosis is made. 

Definitely a fascinating read about a multi-faceted personality who managed to pull off an amazing ruse.

(This book was given to me by Simon and Schuster.)
