Let The Great World Spin

Let the Great World Spin: A Novel Let the Great World Spin: A Novel by Colum McCann

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This is a little more "literary" than my normal fiction taste, but I took it on a coworker's strong recommendation and really enjoyed it. It takes place in mid 1970's New York City, and loosely revolves around one man's tightrope transit of the new World Trade Center buildings. The city seems to tie only tangentially related people together, and we are allowed to explore their stories through each other. Though it took me a little while to be captivated by the story, as I finished it the one thought I had was "That was perfect."
