Let the Great World Spin

On an August day in 1974 New York City when a tight rope walker walks a line between the newly constructed Twin Towers of the World Trade Center that he illegally installed, the stories of the lives of several unrelated people are woven together.   In the reflections on their lives, beauty and hope begin to overshadow the tragedy and hardship in their stories.  Although this is story was a little slow to take off it is great writing with characters that are worth caring about.
