display_description"Honor, destiny, caprice, oblivion—Nova's novel parlays them all into a life-and-death struggle" in this New Yorker Best Book Pick (The Seattle Times).

What does it mean to be a decent man? To love well, with fidelity and constancy? These are the lessons posed in this emotional metaphysical thriller by "one of our most original, brilliant, disturbing writers, who's so fierce he'll take on anything. Here—dark energy: of love, of the cosmos, and of the interrelationship between the two" (The New Yorker).

They are also lessons that Jason Brady, a wildlife biologist, tries to impart to his son, often on fishing trips to their beloved Furnace Creek. Bound up in the laws of Einstein's theories, these lessons will ultimately influence Jake's own career as an astronomer. Together both father and son strive to conquer their greatest challenges: marital infidelity, professional setbacks, and especially, Jake's long term, passionate obsession with his childhood crush—a devilish wild-card named Sara who has what it takes to unbalance Jack's world from its orbit in one shocking twist of fate.
"[A] meditative, philosophical, and beautifully realized novel about the nature of embattled American manhood" (Library Journal) by "one of our great novelists" (Dennis Lehane), The Constant Heart celebrates the bonds of father and son while exploring the intensity of love and the profound attachments between human beings, even at their most imperiled. "If you haven't read Craig Nova, the loss is yours" (Jonathan Yardley, The Washington Post).
