September's book is Let the Great World Spin by Colum McCann. The novel begins when New Yorkers are stopped in their tracks by the sight of a man walking between the towers of the World Trade Center. While "the tightrope walker" (never named, but obviously modeled on Philippe Petit) strolls between the Twin Towers, other New Yorkers are performing quieter acts of courage. In McCann?s elegiac novel of origins and consequences, each of his finely drawn, unexpectedly connected characters balances above an abyss, evincing great courage with every step.
