Summary
Spanning 150 years and two continents, this literary family saga from National Book Award-winning author Colum McCann ties Frederick Douglass' 1845 journey to Ireland with the first trans-Atlantic flight made in 1919 by two British aviators and the work of U.S. Senator George Mitchell on the 1998 Good Friday Agreement. These great men and the events they're connected to are also linked to a servant girl named Lily, who in 1846 leaves Dublin for New York, and her descendants. Transatlantic is a complex meditation on time, memory, freedom, and war. - Description by Shauna Griffin
