Philippe Petit, universal poet laureate of the high wire, accomplished what may be the most astounding “artistic crime” of all time. He walked a high wire illegally stretched between the rooftops of the Twin Towers of the World Center. Philippe’s book, To Reach The Clouds (Man On Wire in paperback), recounts that adventure and is the basis of the 2009 Academy Award-wining documentary film, Man On Wire.
