Read full description of the books:

Ovo je knjiga koju ćete poželeti da ponesete sa sobom na dugo putovanje. Pisanje izvire iz toplog, znalačkog i saosećajnog srca: tvrdo kad je neophodno, kao sleđeno zemljište ratnog Lenjingrada; opušteno i liturgično, kao Nurejev kada podiže Fontejnovu do neba."
Frenk Mekort

"Meken piše kao da od svake njegove rečenice zavisi sudbina sveta. Budite bez brige, svet je u sigurnim rukama: Igrač je remek-delo."
Aleksandar Hemon

"Ubrzo nakon pobede Crvene armije nad nacističkom Nemačkom Nurejev je načinio životni skok do Pariza i poratnog Njujorka Endija Vorhola. Bio je to vrtoglav skok. Čitalac prati radnju, ulazeći u živote koji se žive na suprotnim polovima ljudskog bitisanja, osećajući stoga, kao u detinjstvu, strahopoštovanje pred neopisivom veličinom sveta. Krv i igra. Ogromni horovi i usamljeni monolozi. Kolum Meken je temeljan i pribran slušalac. Stoga i nezaboravan pripovedač."
Džon Berger

Read information about the author

Ebook Igrač read Online! Colum McCann is the author of two collections of short stories and four novels, including "This Side of Brightness,""Dancer" and “Zoli,” all of which were international best-sellers. His newest novel “Let the Great World Spin” will come out in 2009. His fiction has been published in 26 languages and has appeared in The New Yorker, The Atlantic Monthly, GQ, Paris Review and other places. He has written for numerous publications including The Irish Times, Die Zeit, La Republicca, Paris Match, The New York Times, the Guardian and the Independent.

In 2003 Colum was named Esquire magazine's "Writer of the Year." Other awards and honors include a Pushcart Prize, the Rooney Prize, the Irish Independent Hughes and Hughes/Sunday Independent Novel of the Year 2003, and the 2002 Ireland Fund of Monaco Princess Grace Memorial Literary Award. He was recently inducted into the Hennessy Hall of Fame for Irish Literature.

His short film "Everything in this Country Must," directed by Gary McKendry, was nominated for an Academy Award Oscar in 2005.

Colum was born in Dublin in 1965 and began his career as a journalist in The Irish Press. In the early 1980's he took a bicycle across North America and then worked as a wilderness guide in a program for juvenile delinquents in Texas. After a year and a half in Japan, he and his wife Allison moved to New York where they currently live with their three children, Isabella, John Michael and Christian.

Colum teaches in Hunter College in New York, in the Creative Writing program, with fellow novelists Peter Carey and Nathan Englander.

Colum has completed his new novel, "Let the Great World Spin." It is scheduled for release in the U.S on June 23 rd, 2009. An extract was published in the Paris Review in fall 2008. The British and Irish release will be in August, while European publishers will quickly follow up – in what amounts to an unprecedented international publication – in September 2009.

The novel begins in August 1974 as a tightrope walker makes his way through the dawn light across the World Trade Center towers, stunning thousands of watchers below. Using the true story of Philippe Petit as a pull-through metaphor, McCann crafts a portrait of the city and a people. There’s Corrigan, a radical young Irish monk, who struggles with his own demons as he lives among the prostitutes in the burning Bronx. A group of mothers gather in a Park Avenue apartment to mourn the sons who died in Vietnam – they soon discover how much divides them even in their grief. Further uptown, Tillie, a 38-year-old grandmother, turns tricks alongside her teenaged daughter, determined not only to take care of her “babies” but to prove her own worth.

Elegantly weaving together these and other seemingly disparate lives, McCann’s powerful allegory of 9/11 comes alive in the unforgettable voices of the city’s people, unexpectedly drawn together by hope, beauty, and the tightrope walker’s “artistic crime of the century.” McCann’s most ambitious work to date, Let the Great World Spin has already been described as a triumphant American novel.

Let the Great World Spin will be published June 30th. Advance copies will be available here on GoodReads!!!!
