    In the National Book Award-winning Let the Great World Spin, Colum McCann thrilled readers with a marvelous high-wire act of fiction that The New York Times Book Review called "an emotional tour de force". Now McCann demonstrates once again why he is one of the most acclaimed and essential authors of his generation with a soaring novel that spans continents, leaps centuries, and unites a cast of deftly rendered characters, both real and imagined.

    Anastasia Burke says: "Too breathtaking to read just once..."

    Performance
    Story
    If you could sum up TransAtlantic in three words, what would they be?

    Irish generational saga


    What other book might you compare TransAtlantic to and why?

    Colum McCann is a wonderful writer and the beautiful writing in TransAtlantic compares very well with his Let the Great World Spin. The opening chapter - the flight - is as poetic as DeLilllo's World Series baseball chapter in Underworld. As far as the story, it is similar to The Son by Phillip Meyers, which is a Texas generational saga. TransAtlantic is better.


    What about Geraldine Hughes’s performance did you like?

    Fabulous! A good reader can make the book even more enjoyable, and Ms. Hughes certainly did that for me.


    If you could take any character from TransAtlantic out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Lotte because of her interesting life.
