Tania Heads astonishing account of her experience on September 11, 2001from crawling through the carnage and chaos to escaping the seventy-eighth-floor sky lobby of the burning south tower to losing her fianc in the collapsed north towertransformed her into one of the great victims and heroes of that tragic day. Tania selflessly took on the responsibility of giving a voice and a direction to the burgeoning World Trade Center Survivors Network, helping save the Survivor Stairway and leading tours at Ground Zero, including taking then-governor Pataki, Mayor Bloomberg, and former mayor Giuliani on the inaugural tour of the WTC site. She even used her own assets to fund charitable events to help survivors heal. But there was something very wrong with Tanias storya terrible secret that would break the hearts and challenge the faith of all those she claimed to champion. Told with the unique insider perspective and authority of Angelo J. Guglielmo, Jr., a filmmaker shooting a documentary on the efforts of the Survivors Network, and previously one of Tanias closest friends, The Woman Who Wasnt There is the story of one of the most audacious and bewildering quests for acclaim in recent memoryone that poses fascinating questions about the essence of morality and the human need for connection at any cost.
