about this book
Chase Insteadman, a handsome, inoffensive fixture on Manhattan's social
scene, lives off residuals earned as a child star on a beloved sitcom called
Martyr & Pesty. Chase owes his current social cachet to an ongoing tragedy
much covered in the tabloids: His teenage sweetheart and fiancée, Janice
Trumbull, is trapped by a layer of low-orbit mines on the International Space
Station, from which she sends him rapturous and heartbreaking love letters.
Like Janice, Chase is adrift, she in Earth's stratosphere, he in a vague
routine punctuated by Upper East Side dinner parties.
