Publishers Description: It's a good father-daughter moment for them. When they finally spot Venus through the telescope, they share a similar sense of looking at something larger than their lives. It's a whole different planet, and when it fills the viewfinder Catherine stops thinking about the rain and feels what it might be like to inhabit a different life. Invasive technology, rampant consumerism, the destruction of the natural world- this extraordinary collection explores the most urgent issues of our time. In sparkling prose, Sonja Dechian's profound, moving and wry stories speak to our deepest yearning for connection - and the inevitability of our isolation. From a terrorist cell of cyber-bullying victims working to annihilate the digital memory of their humiliation, to a pandemic that leaves grieving parents battling for the media spotlight, these affecting tales invite us to examine our inability to control the world around us - or our own desires. An Astronaut's Life is a beautiful debut from a sharp, intelligent new voice in Australian writing.
