Book by Kiefer Christian

Críticas:

"Smart, lyrical, deeply moving. The central character, a NASA astronaut who has touched the stars, must come to earth, as we all must. What he finds down here beneath the heavens is dizzying in its emotional complexity and pure aching beauty." --T.C. Boyle, author of "When the Killing's Done """The Infinite Tides" takes as its subject an astronaut brought to earth by abandonment and bewilderment. His journey is into the unknown of common suburbia, which he inhabits like an alien, and in whose unfamiliar atmosphere he must be taught to survive. This is a subtle and moving novel, a re-entry and recovery story that eloquently inhabits the terrain of grief and endurance." --Antonya Nelson, author of "Bound""With astronaut Keith Corcoran, Kiefer will take you on an awesome American life odyssey from the International Space Station down to the lower depths of suburbia. This is a breathtakingly beautiful and honest rendering of one man's massive life crisis. Part "Space Oddity", part "Revolutionary Road", this is a magnificently original novel. There are moments in this book I will never forget." --Anthony Swofford, author of "Jarhead""This novel will break your heart and take your breath away." --Ayelet Waldman, author of "Red Hook Road""Maybe the most beautiful subject in literature, when it is handled with grace and intelligence, is the realization and release of long denied grief. Christian Kiefer created astronaut Keith Corcoran to travel that galaxy of earthbound loss and regret, after one brief and glorious trip into orbit. "The Infinite Tides" is the most emotionally and syntactically sophisticated debut I have seen, possibly ever. Keith Corcoran's space walk is so powerfully rendered, it keeps showing up in my dreams." --Pam Houston, author of "Contents May Have Shifted "

"An astute, impressive, and ambitious debut." --"Publishers Weekly," starred review

"[W]ith a shimmering lexicon of fractals, space travel, and physics as well as a piquantly metaphorical sense of place...Kiefer illuminates the nature of a mathematical mind, depicts a dire failure of familial empathy, and translates emotions into cosmic and algorithmic phenomena of startling beauty and profound resonance." --"Booklist"

"Arresting and haunting...What do we give up for our careers? What are we willing to sacrifice? For Keith Corcoran, in the stunning climax of "The Infinite Tides," the answer is far too much. With intelligent and lyrical prose, this novel is at times heartbreaking... [A] remarkably self-assured debut. This isn't just the best first book I'll read this year; it may be the best." --"Brooklyn Rail"
