About this product
- DescriptionA National Post Bestseller!<br/> A multi-faceted story that explores how small actions and changes can give rise to startling and unintended consequences.<br/><br/> Trajectory. Declination. Impact. Escape Velocity. These are rocketry terms that could also describe aspects of the human experience.<br/><br/> A lumberjack obsessed with space travel loses four different wedding rings, and each of the lost rings symbolizes something different to the person who finds it.<br/><br/> There are the members of a rich family whose dramas overlap with those of the homeless people living right next door, under the bridges of the Rosedale Ravine. The wheelchair-bound teen who declares war on a man parking his luxury car in the handicapped parking spot. The would-be rock star selling insurance, whose terminal diagsis sets his life on a new and dizzying path. <br/><br/> And many others. Every person is connected to every other -- genetically, coincidentally, necessarily, or randomly. Every action has a consequence, seen or unseen, from the sublime to the catastrophic.
