The Larger Earth: Descending Notes of a Grounded Astronaut cover

    I found The Larger Earth to be beautifully written ... A strange mix of David Bowie (The Man Who Fell To Earth) and Ted Mooney's Easy Travel To Other Planets. Great!
    Mark Amerika
    The Larger Earth counts as the best writing Memmott's done yet: his metaphor of the 'grounded astronaut' travels with uncanny speed across the late 20th-century landscape.
    Andrew Joron, co-author of Invisible Machines

Rhysling Award winner Memmott is a wizard, whirling together ideas like a conductor before an orchestra. The Larger Earth is the story of an astronaut returned to an Earth not quite the same as when he left. Apocalyptic, visionary, full of hope, The Larger Earth is a masterpiece.
