From Dave Eggers, bestselling author of The Circle, comes a tightly controlled,
emotionally searching novel. Your
Fathers, Where Are They? And the Prophets, Do They Live Forever? is the
formally daring, brilliantly executed story of one man struggling to make sense
of his country, seeking answers the only way he knows how.
In a barracks on an abandoned military base, miles from the
nearest road, Thomas watches as the man he has brought wakes up. Kev, a NASA
astronaut, doesn’t recognize his captor, though Thomas remembers him. Kev cries
for help. He pulls at his chain. But the ocean is close by, and nobody can hear
him over the waves and wind. Thomas apologizes. He didn’t want to have to
resort to this. But they really needed to have a conversation, and Kev didn’t
answer his messages. And now, if Kev can just stop yelling, Thomas has a few
questions. Download and start listening now!
