An astronaut turning eighty suffers a disturbing encounter. A hard-charging lawyer levitates. Satan makes a cruel wager with God. America bans stand-up comedy. Thus begins a journey toward self-discovery, concluding with four childhood friends taking a road trip fifty years after the last time they were all together and laying their relationships bare.

Twenty-five stories set in California, Oregon, New York, Israel and India examine ambition, loss, friendship, parenthood, memory and aging to consider elusive-and often painful-truths.
