From the award-winning author of The Mistress of Nothing comes a highly imaginative story of colliding worlds and extraordinary connections, revealing the tenuous, often unexpected ties that bind us together. When everything was falling apart, someone fell into placea€b Suburban London housewife Harriet spends her days doing what shea€™s worst at. She grocery shops for her family who eats too much, parents a son who refuses to communicate, and tries to be a wife to a man who hasna€™t embraced her in years. But what starts out as a mundane trip to the supermarket turns her world upside down when a mysterious man named Yacub falls out of the sky from the landing gear of an airplane and lands on her car in the parking lota€”and survives. Hea€™s starving and freezing colda€”what else can she do other than bring him home to her family? Suddenly her son has stepped away from the video games and her husband is looking at her once againa€”even if ita€™s because they think shea€™s crazy for taking in a complete stranger who stinks of gas. And just who is Yacub, this young man who escaped from a Dubai labor camp and stowed away in the belly of the plane to travel around the world? Is it an extraordinary coincidence that hea€™s dropped into Harrieta€™s life just as a long-buried secret from her past threatens to come to light? Inspired by real-life accounts of airplane stowaways, Landing Gear showcases the complex texture of modern life, and how we sometimes need help seeing whata€™s right in front of us.A Novel Kate Pullinger.
