Pilot and flight instructor Jamie Forbes is on a routine run when Maria, the panicked spouse of another pilot, radios that her husband has collapsed at the controls. Forbes talks her through the steps to land safely. Maria's explanation to reporters that Forbes hypnotized her sparks a series of memories for Jamie, and the events that follow force him to examine what constitutes reality, to contemplate what lies beyond the edges of our carefully constructed worlds, and whether those edges are real or created by our own limitations. Bach's book is [rich], raising provocative questions and striking the perfect balance, providing answers without implying that they are the only or necessarily the right ones. [PW 6/15/09]
