A bit disappointing. Perhaps I was expecting too much after the pleasure I got from reading McCann's "Transatlantic." The two books were similar stylistically with multiple stories revolving around a single historical event. In the case of this book, the event was Phillipe Petit's 1974 tightrope walk on a wire stretched high across Manhattan's Twin Towers. Among those whose lives were being lived out in the shadow of the tightrope were two Irish brothers, one a Catholic monk, and the hookers who cared for them. Others included a group of mothers who lost their sons in the Vietnam fiasco and, of course, the walker himself. The title character--this old world--just keeps on spinning, despite the depths of grief, tragedy, love and joy that transpire as it rotates.
