Man on Wire Film Tie in
" While Petit only briefly addresses September 11, his book is ultimately a quiet tribute to the buildings." -- "The New York Times"" Remarkably, the book is as astonishing as the act itself." -- "The Times of London"
Born into a middle-class French family in 1949, Philippe Petit taught himself magic, juggling and high-wire walking while still a child. At sixteen he began to travel the world as a street juggler. He has performed illegal high-wire walks between the towers of Notre Dame, the twin towers of the World Trade Center, and the northern pylons of the Sydney Harbour Bridge.
