Let The Great World Spin

Let the Great World Spin: A Novel
by Colum McCann

A story shaped around an event, McCann evokes a place and time by fleshing out the characters that make it real: A priest, his brother, a whore, an heiress, a hacker, and in the center of it all Philippe Petit, the wire-walker who danced on a cable between NYC's twin towers in 1974.
