From Dave Eggers, best-selling author of The Circle, a tightly controlled, emotionally searching novel. Your Fathers, Where Are They? And the Prophets, Do They Live Forever? is the formally daring, brilliantly executed story of one man struggling to make sense of his country, seeking answers the only way he knows how.
In a barracks on an abandoned military base, miles from the nearest road, Thomas watches as the man he has brought wakes up. Kev, a NASA astronaut, doesn't recognize his captor, though Thomas remembers him. Kev cries for help. He pulls at his chain. But the ocean is close by, and nobody can hear him over the waves and wind. Thomas apologizes. He didn't want to have to resort to this. But they really needed to have a conversation, and Kev didn't answer his messages. And now, if Kev can just stop yelling, Thomas has a few questions.
Read by MacLeod Andrews with Mark Deakins, Michelle Gonzalez, John H. Mayer, Kate McGregor-Stewart, Rebecca Lowman, Bruce Turk, and Marc Cashman.

Narrators were amazing, it wouldn't have been half as good if I had read it and not listened to it.
Struggled to finish. More allegorical than enjoyable. Hero disappointed by his life.not particularly likable, ending unsatisfying.
silly little theologian
Awesome story, Macleod Arthur is fantastic, really providing life to Thomas as the narrator. A very interesting idea and I loved the way it was done. Eggers is the man!
Dave Eggers is a bit of a legend in my eyes. The stories he tells that some how relate to my life eve though the specifics are so far from my experiences. His non-profit 826, is in many ways, a model for my own. He can do no wrong by me.
