|Plot Summary of Phases of Gravity|
|"PHASES OF GRAVITY is a novel written by Dan Simmons in 1989. It's curiously not a thriller nor a science-fiction book but an introspective novel.
Richard Baedecker is a former astronaut who had the chance to walk on the moon during an Apollo mission of the glorious seventies. From this moment on, he began to lose little by little interest in life. A divorce, an uninteresting job, problems with his son will drive him in 1988 throughout the United States for a trip into his past.
A book to discover."
Daniel Staebler, Resident Scholar
