SUMMARY

In 1974, 24-year-old French tightrope artist, magician, mime, juggler, and unicyclist Philippe Petit performed an illegal high wire walk between the Twin Towers of New York City's World Trade Center. His astonishing act required years of spying, scouting, and hiding; during the stunt, Petit traversed the wire eight times as police waited to arrest him. The public, however, fell in love with the charming Frenchman, and eventually all charges were dropped and Petit was granted a lifelong pass to the observation deck of the Twin Towers.To Reach the Cloudsis poetic, quirky, and loveable--and tragic, now that the Twin Towers has become a symbol of terror and loss.Petit, Philippe is the author of 'To Reach the Clouds My High Wire Walk Between the Two Towers', published 2007 under ISBN 9781602391284 and ISBN 1602391289.
