AOT #334: Christian Kiefer Podcasts The Infinite Tides
Christian Kiefer joins us, in conversation with bestselling author Pam Houston, to read from and discuss The Infinite Tides, a stunning debut novel about an astronaut’s return to earth and the losses he must confront.
“Maybe the most beautiful subject in literature, when it is handled with grace and intelligence, is the realization and release of long denied grief. Christian Kiefer created Astronaut Keith Corcoran to travel that galaxy of earthbound loss and regret, after one brief and glorious trip into orbit. The Infinite Tides is the most emotionally and syntactically sophisticated debut I have seen, possibly ever. Keith Corcoran’s space walk is so powerfully rendered, it keeps showing up in my dreams.”-Pam Houston, author of Contents May Have Shifted
