Richard Baedecker, the aptly named hero of this extraordinary novel, is a man adrift, searching for a lost sense of purpose. A former astronaut, Baedecker once walked on the moon, briefly escaping the tidal pull of gravity itself. Sixteen years later, gravity and other entropic forces have overtaken him. His marriage has ended. His professional life has grown increasingly meaningless. His relationship with his only son has all but disintegrated. At this critical moment, against the unlikely backdrop of Poona, India, Baedecker encounters a remarkable young woman named Maggie Brown, who will point him toward the "places of power" he has left behind and help him rediscover his essential self.

I really enjoyed this book. The author explores the relationship between a father and his son, and many other things as well, as experienced by a former (fictional) astronaut who has walked on the moon. Anyone who has ever been interested in the the space program would probably enjoy this. I do not however, think it should be classified as science fiction.
