Tremendous intertwined story following a number of seemingly unrelated lives in New York City in 1974, somehow all connected with the true story of the tightrope walker who walked across a wire he had secretly set up between the World Trade Towers! The Book on CD excellently uses different voices with great accents in many of the chapters representing the many characters who populate this book from the Irish monk to the African-American prostitute to the court judge and the tightrope walker himself, and more!
