James Michener was a prolific American author whose works are known to be well-researched and sprawling. Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction in 1948, Michener quickly established himself as one of the most celebrated and popular novelists of his generation. He went on to publish dozens of lengthy novels. In Space: A Novel, Michener fictionalizes the US space program. He follows several characters and their families over the course of decades as they complete NASA missions, moon landings, and succeed in the space race. The work is noted for its accurate portrayals of NASA spacecraft and its seamless interweavings of fiction and history, making it a quintessential volume for any Michener collector.
