The National Book Award-winning novelist Colum McCann discusses his new novel, TransAtlantic
On June 5th, National Book Award-winning novelist Colum McCann talks with John Wray (Lowboy) about his spellbinding new novel (to be released June 4), a gripping historical fiction spanning 150 years, from 1845 to the present, and weaving the tales of four generations of women with moments in the lives of Frederick Douglass, early British aviators Jack Alcock and Teddy Brown, and former senator George Mitchell.
Colum McCann is the internationally bestselling author of the novels Let the Great World Spin, Zoli, Dancer, This Side of Brightness, and Songdogs, as well as two critically acclaimed story collections.
Advanced praise for TransAtlantic: “A beautiful writer . . . This is what interests McCann: lives made amid and despite violence; the hidden braids of places, times, and people; the way the old days ‘arrive back in the oddest ways.’ ”—Publishers Weekly
