Overview

Galen McNeil always considered himself immune to superstitions...except for this Friday the 13th. One year ago exactly, his girlfriend broke up with him because she claimed God told her to, and Galen can't help but reminisce. His reflections are compounded when an evangelist reads Galen the same passage from the Bible that his ex quoted a year ago that day! The coincidences are almost too much for him when the conversation is interrupted by a beautiful woman who vies for Galen's attention. Stunned by the conflation of past and present, Galen is unable to act and the woman leaves without giving her name or number. For the next week Galen puts up signs in the middle of the park, entreating the woman's return as he tries desperately to regain what was lost and answer tough questions about his life and his place in the world. Filled with fully fleshed characters, staccato, realistic dialogue, an off-beat wit, and a philosophical subtext as poignant as it is heartfelt, Drawing Constellations presents a gripping cross-section of our culture and our changing time.
