Summary
The Body in the Clouds tells the story of one extraordinary moment - a man falling from the sky and surviving - and of three men who see it, in different ways and different times, as they stand on the same piece of land. An astronomer in the late 1700s, a bridge worker in the 1930s, an expatriate banker returning home in the early 21st century: all three are transformed by one magical event. All are searching for the same thing: how to understand what it means to call a place home and how to tell when you get there
Summary
When a man falls from the sky and survives—the three men who witness it, in different ways and at different times, as they stand on the same piece of land—find their lives transformed by this magical event as they all struggle to understand the meaning of what “home” is
