SPOTLIGHT ON: Let the Great World Spin

Filed under: Literature — by tjenglish @ 6:02 pm


Winning the National Book Award is a singular accomplishment; we salute IAW&A member COLUM McCANN for this honor. A more significant achievement, however, is the writing of a great book that will withstand the test of time. Read LET THE GREAT WORLD SPIN and you will know what we mean. “One of the most eclectic, profound novels” (NY Times); “This novel bristles with personality and moods” (SF Chronicle); “A marvelously rich novel” (Seattle Times). The praise has been lavish and the National Book Award well deserved, but most of all, as writers and artists, we tip our caps to Colum for having dared to create such a dazzling work of art as LET THE GREAT WORLD SPIN.
