 About the Book 

When astronaut Julie Payette was returning to earth from space, she said she found being reintroduced to even half the gravity on earth too much for her body to bear. Living in Gravity explores how we bear gravity, both physically and metaphorically.MoreWhen astronaut Julie Payette was returning to earth from space, she said she found being reintroduced to even half the gravity on earth too much for her body to bear. Living in Gravity explores how we bear gravity, both physically and metaphorically. Some of us are lucky enough to float with someone through a night sky, as the lovers in Chagalls paintings do, while at other times we are crushed by relentless and punishing weight. In this playful collection, the experience of astronauts and swimmers, the joyous and grief-stricken, are celebrated and lamented.
