ABOUT THE BOOK
Greetings From Gravipause: The term gravipause is indigenous to cosmology; it identifies that point in physical space where two celestial bodies either lose their gravitational attraction for each other and break apart or collapse into each other. When applied to love relationships it takes on a whole other resonance. Greetings From Gravipause, a parallel narrative, tells the story of a 30-ish Anglo underachiever, self-professed failed bulimic, adjunct instructor of astronomy and his wife of eleven years, a Geisha wannabe with angelic mezzo soprano pipes, this juxtaposed with the story of a young father of two, soon three, on the morning he will leave his wife and children for a woman twelve years his senior. The novella explores the themes of love, and dissolution, stasis and legacy. It’s about a father and a son. Husband and wife. Falling together. Or breaking apart. A tragi-comic attempt to take the reader to that place where one comes to realize that the days ahead are as scripted and certain as the days gone by. A place where the ties that bind have become frayed and of little consequence. The postcard reads Greetings From Gravipause.
