Bombing the Moon
At 24, Devin Rush's future is unknown and his parents don't support his dream of becoming a songwriter. Jobless and antagonistic, Devin feels like the world is rigged against him, and his parents, wondering if he'll ever man up, fear he'll depend on them for life. But when Devin's grandfather gives him a one-way ticket to Nairobi, Kenya, Devin believes it's his family that wants him gone; outraged and seeing no alternative, he leaves abruptly, and is thrust into a world unlike any he's ever seen.
Stunned by his sudden departure, Devin's parents and sister are pushed further afield of the control they crave. Resentment and guilt nudge his parent's marriage closer to collapse, and abandonment triggers his sister's long-buried shame. Meanwhile, when Nairobi's election approaches and tensions erupt, Devin is faced with choices and consequences that are all too real. Beautifully written, often subversive and darkly funny, Bombing the Moon is an honest, intimate exploration of the promises and limitations of tough love.
