Review of Let the Great World Spin by Colum McCann:

“McCann’s sweeping new novel hinges on Philippe Petit’s illicit 1974 high-wire walk between the twin towers. It is the aftermath, in which Petit appears in the courtroom of Judge Solomon Soderberg, that sets events into motion.”

(From Publisher’s Weekly).
