Keith Corcoran has spent his entire life preparing to be an astronaut At the moment of his greatness finally aboard the International Space Station hundreds of miles above the earth s swirling blue surface he receives word that his sixteen year old daughter has died in a car accident and that his wife has left him Returning to earth and to his now empty suburban home he is alone with the ghosts the memories and feelings he can barely acknowledge let alone process He is a mathematical genius a brilliant engineer a famous astronaut but nothing in his life has readied him for this br With its endless interlocking culs de sac big box stores and vast parking lots contemporary suburbia is not a promising place to recover from such trauma But healing begins through new relationships never Keith s strength first as a torrid affair with one neighbor and then as an unlikely friendship with another a Ukrainian immigrant who every evening lugs his battered telescope to the weed choked vacant lot at the end of the street Gazing up at the heavens together drinking beer and smoking pot the two men share their vastly different experiences and slowly reveal themselves to each other until Keith can begin to confront his loss and begin to forgive himself for decades of only half living i The Infinite Tides i is a deeply moving tragicomic and ultimately redemptive story of love loss and resilience It is also an indelible and nuanced portrait of modern American life that renders both our strengths and weaknesses with great and tender beauty, Bill Reed manages a wildlife sanctuary in rural Idaho caring for injured animals raptors a wolf and his beloved bear Majer among them that are unable to survive in the wild Seemingly rid of his troubled past Bill hopes to marry the local veterinarian and live a quiet life together the promise of which is threatened when a childhood friend is released from prison Suddenly forced to confront the secrets of his criminal youth Bill battles fiercely to preserve the shelter that protects these wounded animals and to keep hidden his turbulent even dangerous history Alternating between past and present Christian Kiefer contrasts the wreckage of Bill s crime ridden years in Reno Nevada with the elusive promise of a peaceful future In finely sculpted prose imaginatively at odds with the harsh volatile world Kiefer evokes i The Animals i builds powerfully toward the revelation of Bill s defining betrayal and the drastic lengths Bill goes to in order to escape the consequences, No description available, Fiction Renowned installation artist Frank Poole has embarked on his most ambitious project to date an entire housing subdivision in the desert of Nevada with every element painted stark white By his side is his young wife Caitlin his manager and confidante who keeps the volatile artist functioning from day to day But as Frank grows increasingly anxious about his undertaking Caitlin learns she is pregnant and begins to wonder what the future might hold for them both At turns funny tragic triumphant and harrowing ONE DAY SOON TIME WILL HAVE NO PLACE LEFT TO HIDE is a documentary film in prose Structured as a kinoroman a novella as film script as novella the text explores the nature of art of watching and of being watched of life put on display all the while focusing on the day to day existence of one couple as they work through the incendiary materials of their lives together
