Exhilarating, emotional, and extremely absorbing, this memoir tells the story of French acrobat and high-wire artist Philippe Petit who, on a day in 1974, illegally rigged a cable between the Twin Towers of New York’s World Trade Center and walked between them without a net, making eight crossings in all. Petit chronicles the incredible planning that made his daring exploit possible, narrating an event that falls somewhere between crime and adventure and that serves now as a fitting tribute to the Twin Towers. This book served as the inspiration for the documentary Man on Wire, which was awarded the 2009 Oscar.

How good that he has sat down now to give us this lively and often heart-stopping account of how he achieved his masterpiece." —Paul Auster, author, The Invention of Solitude and The New York Trilogy, on the English-language edition
