In 1981 two artists, Christo and Jeanne-Claude, proposed an installation in New York's Central Park that would span twenty-three miles. They received a 185-page response from the Parks Department that could have been summed up in one single word: "no." But they persisted. This biography of contemporary artists Christo and Jeanne-Claude is a story of the power of collaboration, and vision, and of the creation of the spectacular Gates and other renowned artworks.
