Ascension

By Steven Galloway, 1975-

A New York Times Bestseller

It is the summer of 1976 and Salvo Ursari, a man of retirement age, is walking on a taut wire strung between the twin towers of New York's World Trade Center. This riveting moment opens the story of Salvo Ursari, a Transylvanian boy who found his way to the competitive world of the American circus. Ascension combines heart-pounding descriptions of high-altitude acrobatics with mesmerizing detail of Romany and circus culture.
