    It's New York, August 1974: a man is walking in the sky. Between the newly built Twin Towers, the man twirls through the air. Far below, the lives of complete strangers spin towards each other: Corrigan, a radical Irish monk working in the Bronx; Claire, a delicate Upper East Side housewife reeling from the death of her son; Lara, a drug-addled young artist; Gloria, solid and proud despite decades of hardship; Tillie, a hooker who used to dream of a better life; and Jazzlyn, her beautiful daughter raised on promises that ...

tsunami

a wonderful book

by tsunami on Apr 12, 2012

My book club read this and I loved it. It's a gorgeous book. I had recently seen Man on a Wire, a film about a tightrope walk between the twin towers, and it very much helped my reading experience, as the book is sewed together with this event. I liked the characters, the writing style, the description, and the various human experiences. Highly recommended.
