Let the Great World Spin - Colum McCann A superb writer. Have read at least a couple of his others, but this is the best so far. 10 stars. This is the best book I have read in years. Brilliant. I want to go back and immediately re-read it. The pure celebration of us all. Our stories. There are so many individual stories in the world. Meaningless and full of meaning, all at once. Now to go back and re read it, to savour it more slowly, to study the craftsmanship, the carved swirls, the sleek lines, the artistry at the back as well as the front.
