Review:

"McCann....goes out....on his own literary tightrope. He weaves an ambitious mosaic....[of] lives [that] intersect in surprising yet believable ways.....[LET THE GREAT WORLD SPIN] vividly captures New York at its worst and best. But it transcends all that. In the end, it's a novel about families - the ones we're born into and the ones we make for ourselves."

Bob Minzesheimer, USA Today, 07/03/2009

Review:

"[Philippe] Petit's stunt acts as a centerline on which McCann hangs the stories of a dozen spiritually disheveled characters, each searching for an alcove of silence in a clamorous city."

Mike Peed, Washington Post, 07/15/2009

Book Description: Random House USA Inc, United States, 2009. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 203 x 147 mm. Brand New Book. In the dawning light of a late-summer morning, the people of lower Manhattan stand hushed, staring up in disbelief at the Twin Towers. It is August 1974, and a mysterious tightrope walker is running, dancing, leaping between the towers, suspended a quarter mile above the ground. In the streets below, a slew of ordinary lives become extraordinary in bestselling novelist Colum McCann s stunningly intricate portrait of a city and its people. Let the Great World Spin is the critically acclaimed author s most ambitious novel yet: a dazzlingly rich vision of the pain, loveliness, mystery, and promise of New York City in the 1970s. Corrigan, a radical young Irish monk, struggles with his own demons as he lives among the prostitutes in the middle of the burning Bronx. A group of mothers gather in a Park Avenue apartment to mourn their sons who died in Vietnam, only to discover just how much divides them even in grief. A young artist finds herself at the scene of a hit-and-run that sends her own life careening sideways. Tillie, a thirty-eight-year-old grandmother, turns tricks alongside her teenage daughter, determined not only to take care of her family but to prove her own worth. Elegantly weaving together these and other seemingly disparate lives, McCann s powerful allegory comes alive in the unforgettable voices of the city s people, unexpectedly drawn together by hope, beauty, and the artistic crime of the century. A sweeping and radical social novel, Let the Great World Spin captures the spirit of America in a time of transition, extraordinary promise, and, in hindsight, heartbreaking innocence. Hailed as a fiercely original talent (San Francisco Chronicle), award-winning novelist McCann has delivered a triumphantly American masterpiece that awakens in us a sense of what the novel can achieve, confront, and even heal.
