It's 1974 in DeKalb County, Illinois and the planets have failed to align for Roy Conlon. Widowed and broke, his eight-year-old son Eric is suddenly a mystery to him. The boy has become aware of a sky awhirl with stars and of the universe outside his small-Midwestern town. And as powerful forces pull Eric away, Roy's efforts to hold onto his son are threatened by weakness, guilt, and his participation in a foolish crime. Enter The Constellations, a novel of the diverging paths of a father and his son, and how each copes with the loss of the woman whose love and guidance held them together. Roy and Eric's parallel journeys take them through a landscape populated by long shot players and kitchen sink philosophers, by ruthless thieves and fierce protectors. A compelling novel of small town America in the shadow of Vietnam and Watergate, Cunningham's spare prose and deftly drawn heroes complete a portrait of our country reminiscent of Mark Richard and Jim Shepard. Scarred, divided, and damaged, his characters represent all of our false promises and failed dreams.
As we take closer looks at the world that we live in today, there are a lot of things we can see, but we might have a hard time making sense of those things that are seen. Our society is ever changing and morally degrading its way into things...The only recourse of action to take is a serious introspection to...be responsible for the things that are left undone and unaccounted for. Our world is in dire need of repair and restoration and it must begin within the confines of our immediate families...We must start with the head and roots of our family, which is the Man. One of God's most effective and greatest resources is a man who is fully dedicated and willing to stand in the gap and call those things which be not as though they were. All it takes is one man!
