This Side of Brightness by Colum McCann

Book Description

"This Side of Brightness" by Colum McCannAt the turn of the century, Nathan Walker comes to New York City to take the most dangerous job in the country. A sandhog, he burrows beneath the East River, digging the tunnel that will carry trains from Brooklyn to Manhattan. In the bowels of the riverbed, the sandhogs--black, white, Irish, Italian--dig together, the darkness erasing all differences. Above ground, though, the men keep their distance until a spectacular accident welds a bond between Walker and his fellow sandhogs that will both bless and curse three generations.

Moonfire. The Epic Journey of Apollo 11 by Colum McCann Moonfire. The Epic Journey of Apollo 11, Hardback (July 2015)

On July 20, 1969, after a decade of tests and training, supported by a staff of 400,000 engineers and scientists, and with a budget of billions, the most powerful rocket ever launched brought Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, and Michael Collins to the moon. Rediscover this epoch-making event with TASCHEN's adaptation of Norman Mailer's account.

Dancer by Colum McCann Dancer, Paperback / softback (June 2015)

Taking his inspiration from biographical facts, novelist McCann tells the erotically charged story of the Russian dancer Rudolf Nureyev through the cast of those who knew him. And at the heart of the spectacle stands the artist himself, willful, lustful, and driven by a never-to-be-met need for perfection.
