Sun in Flight Vol. l SPECIAL RELATIONSHIP

ByJulian Knuckles

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
SUN IN FLIGHT is comedy set against tragedy. Three generations of Kindlers cling to wobbly orbits of a world lurching from Hiroshima to Woodstock to 9/11. Terror of the Bomb becomes fear of Terror. In the family saga, dreamtime magic seeps into daytime reality. The wider focus is on the arms race and the ‘special relationship’ of two countries. Volume I, SPECIAL RELATIONSHIP, recounts the brief wartime marriage of Kentucky navigator Cal Kindler and Cambridge schoolgirl Vik Oakshott. WWII events drive the plot. Cal fears blowback – the Dresden raid brings home to him how no home is safe. And then Vik and baby Dawn die by fire on the same day Hiroshima is bombed. Vik’s dad, Harry, is the granddaddy of all barbershop strategists. He paints the wider picture for us. Wartime details, from ration-stretching tips to the B17 layout, hang from the episodic storyline. A surprise ending reveals the strange common dreaming Vik shared with her sister.
