About this title

Synopsis:

The story of a small town rocked by the tragedy of a plane crash, the arrival of a stranger who claims to be the lone survivor of the crash, and a marriage about to crumble offers a richly textured portrait of change, compassion, and tenuous connections. A first novel.

About the Author:

J. Robert Lennon grew up in Phillipsburg, New Jersey. After completing his BA in English at the University of Pennsylvania he went on a creative writing course at the University of Montana. His first novel, The Light of Falling Stars stemmed from a recurring childhood dream about an air crash. It went on to win the 1997 Barnes and Noble Discover Great Writers Award. The Funnies, J. Robert Lennon's second novel, was published in 1999 and his third is On the Night Plain. J. Robert Lennon lives in Ithaca, New York State, with his wife and son. Granta Books will publish his collection of very short stories, Pieces for the Left Hand, in 2005.
