TransAtlantic is a thoughtful and thought-provoking novel spanning the better part of two centuries. Weaving bits of history -- such as Brown and Alcock's first transatlantic flight, Frederick Douglass' visit to Ireland while still a runaway slave, and diplomat George Mitchell brokering the peace in Ireland in 1998 -- with fictional players, McCann show us how the magic of the everyday is related to the momentous. Events circle around and family stories overlap as mothers, daughters, fathers, and sons pass their personal history from one generation to the next. This is a novel to be savored. -- Liza Bernard, Norwich Bookstore, Norwich, VT
