Author, entrepreneur David Sayre, has reinvented our world and peopled it with characters, who are each on journeys that criss-cross and intersect in unforgettable ways. Also reminiscent of ABCs Lost television series, there is an interconnectedness here that defies an easy explanation. “This is a biography of six of us–that is, six members of our family, the People of Earth. We meet our characters on a poor farm and a great estate, in a locked institution and an astronomical observatory, at the height of power and the depth of despair. Their search and their struggles are rooted in the coarsest ground of our world but reach out to the Universe. They find for us, in the grit and the stars, the least likely thing in the universe, The Great Improbability. Their story is ours.”
