When Colum McCann released Let the Great World Spin in 2009, it entered the pantheon of "Great American Novels" almost instantly. By the end of the year, this polyphonic work set in the New York of the 1970s, but serving as an allegory of the city's resilient post-9/11 self, won the National Book Award and was named Amazon's #1 Book of the Year. Born in Dublin in 1965, McCann is the author of five novels which have been published in 30 languages. All were international bestsellers. He was named Esquire's Writer of the Year in 2003, and was awarded a French Chevalier des arts et lettres in 2009. His fiction has appeared in The New Yorker, The Paris Review and The Irish Times. He currently teaches at Hunter College in New York.
