Keith Corcoran has spent his entire life preparing to be an astronaut. Finally aboard the International Space Station, hundreds of miles above Earth's swirling blue surface, he receives word that tragedy has befallen his family and that, in its wake, his wife has left him. Returning to earth, to his now empty suburban home, Keith is alone with the memories and feelings he can barely acknowledge. His experiences in space quickly dwindle to a distant memory. What remains are cul-de-sacs, big box stores, enormous parking lots. And yet out of this landscape come reconnection, friendship, and, finally, a sense of how to live under the weight of gravity. "Smart, lyrical, deeply moving." T.C. Boyle
