“Let the Great World Spin” by Colum McCann
I have read a couple of Colum McCann’s books. I really enjoyed Dancer, probably my favourite of his books. Let the Great World Spin has wonderful character development which is what holds the book together. While the characters are fictional, they are interwoven and brought together by the true story of Philippe Petite’s 1974 highwire walk between the World Trade Twin Towers. From an Irish monk to an Upper East side socialite, each has their own story that makes this book an enthralling read.
