God Is an Astronaut PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

God Is an Astronaut free pdf The day of the accident, Jess is in the backyard with a chainsaw, clearing space to build the greenhouse she's always wanted. And, as always, she is thinking of Arthur. Arthur, her colleague in the botany department, who never believed she'd actually start the project. Arthur, who, after getting too close, has cut off contact, escaping to study the subarctic pines. But now there has been a disaster, one connected to her husband's space tourism company: the explosion of a space shuttle filled with commercial passengers, which ignites a media frenzy at her family's doorstep. Jess's engineer husband is implicated, and she knows there is information he's withholding, even as she becomes an unwitting player in the efforts to salvage the company's reputation.Struggling, Jess writes to the only person she can be candid with. And in her e-mails to Arthur--warm, frank, yet freighted with regret and the old habits of seduction--Jess tries to untangle how her life has changed, in one instant but also slowly, and how it might change still.With sure pacing and intimate wisdom, "God is an Astronaut" unfurls a story of secrets and wonderment, of the unforgettable and the vast unknowable.
