ghosts, the memories and feelings he can barely acknowledge. He is a mathematical genius, a brilliant engineer, a revered astronaut, but nothing has prepared him for such a vacancy.His experiences in space quickly dwindle to a distant memory. What remains are endlessly interlocking cul-de-sacs, big box stores, enormous parking lots. And yet out of this landscape comes reconnection. A neighbor who holds a secret to Keith's own crumbling life. A man from a distant country who presents an opportunity for redemption. An unlikely friendship that helps him come to some understanding about everything he has lost.

It is also an indelible and nuanced portrait of modern American life, rendering our strengths and weaknesses with great and tender beauty.
