Harper Roland has abandoned his job as a war correspondent, and returned home a weary, jaded 37-year-old. Uncertain of the future, he begins a search for enduring love--hoping to also regain his ability to see the beauty of the world. The novel's sweeping tale encompasses four continents, and ultimately leads Harper back to the chaos he longed to escape. The result is a view of the contemporary world, in which place and history are mere starting points for the deeper journey into the geography of the human heart. "...Calvin Baker...works in a rarefied strain of literature whose practitioners include Faulkner and Morrison, Calvino and Cormac McCarthy: allegorists whose stories are tinged by parable and psalm even as their sensibility remains keenly attuned to the avant garde. Grace is a tale of existential isolation juxtaposed against a sense of interpersonal connection that borders on the Brahmanic...a book so universal and timeless you could almost believe it had been unearthed from a medieval crypt, even as its critical but always compassionate observation of human folly positions it squarely within the increasingly fractious...postmodern world." --Dale Peck, author of Visions and Revisions and The Garden of Lost and Found
