Description

For poet Anna Leahy and scientist Douglas R. Dechow, quintessential children of the Space Age, love for each other and love of space are inseparable. The moon landings, the shuttle program, the prospect of manned travel to Mars: each stop in humanity's journey to space has marked a step in their ongoing love affair with each other and the cosmos. Told by Anna and Doug in alternating chapters, part memoir and part homage to the unquenchable spirit of exploration, Generation Space is a charming, captivating celebration of the serendipitous power of a shared passion.

Reviews

Generation Space is an engaging tale of two love affairs: the authors' love for one another and America's fascination with lunar landings and interplanetary travel. Like twin moons in similar orbits, the stories become inseparable. Kudos to Anna Leahy and Douglas R. Dechow for reminding us of all the reasons we constantly reach for the stars. -Dinty W. Moore, author of Between Panic & Desire
