Colum McCann's last novel, Let the Great World Spin, won the National Book Award, was a New York Times bestseller and sold over a million copies worldwide. Sweeping 150 years of history and using the real-life narratives of Frederick Douglass, Alcock and Brown, and Senator George Mitchell, TRANSATLANTIC is Colum McCann's most ambitious and beautiful novel yet. TRANSATLANTIC can be compared with the work of Michael Ondaatje, E. L. Doctorow and David Mitchell in its scope and literary quality.
