We had voyaged far into space and now we were returning.
A boy is kidnapped from his aunt’s care during a trip to the planetarium at the start of this novel, which spans 15 years and several continents as the two slowly work to find each other again. The author is a poet, which shows in his luminously gorgeous prose and patent love of names and wordplay. This dreamy work is obsessed with notions of loss, fate, discovery and destiny; but it also grounds the reader with two fantastic characters both struggling to find what they are looking for while ending up exactly where they need to be.
