A heartrending novel about one man's search for meaning in a difficult life. A child ridiculed for his weight, a son overshadowed by a favored brother, a husband who falls short of his wife's ambitions, an old man with a broken heart... As Orbits's life passes, he doggedly pursues a simple dream -- a little place in the country where a family might thrive -- while wondering if he can ever shake free of the tragedies that seem to define him. Fatboy Fall Down is the lush and heartbreaking musings of a man trying to understand his place in the world. Though it's a story shot through with sadness, it speaks to universal truths, and Rabindranath Maharaj's deft touch underscores the resilience of the human spirit.
