Let the Great World Spin by Colum McCann

Published: June 2009, HarperCollins (@HarperCollinsCA)

The Recommend:

I’ve read just the first chapter and don’t want to go the rest alone. Like the symphonious crowds that gather in opening scene, chattering at a dot in the sky, I’d rather know that there’s someone else on the sidewalk below who wants to talk it through.

    Worth every page.

    It might interest some to have a peek at http://www.manonwire.com/

    A website devoted to a documentary on the real live peripheral character of ‘Let the Great World Spin’.

    PS – excellent start ABE!
