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 place… Suburban London housewife Harriet spends her days doing what she’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 hasn’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 lot—and survives. He’s starving and freezing cold—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 again—even if it’s because they think she’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 he’s dropped into Harriet’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 what’s right in front of us.

Born shortly after his parents' immigration from Italy in 1920, Joseph D. Pace grew up in an Italian neighborhood in New York City. He was encouraged to learn English at an early age; and his parents learned right along with him. They loved this country and young Joseph learned this love and devotion to country as well. It seemed only natural for him to answer the call to defend the United States when World War II broke out. Enlisting in the Army and later transferring to the Army Air Corps, he hoped to become a fighter pilot. Washed out of pilot training, though, he looked for some other means to fulfill his dream of flying and managed to become a radio operator/gunner on a B-17. Stationed in England, he flew ten missions with his crew. Flying replacement with another crew on his eleventh mission, he had to bail out over a German mine field ending his participation in the war. He was awarded the Purple Heart, and following a long recovery period, was given an honorable discharge. He never talked much about his World War II service until attending an 8th Air Force reunion in Las Vegas, Nevada in 1990. Mingling with others who shared his experiences he was encouraged to tell his story so that future generations could know more about this war. As he grew older he felt compelled to get the story in book form.

"I aint about to let that mule-headed old goat louse up this towns whole future, and you mights well know that right now. I didnt get to be First Selectman by being a doormat, and Im gonna have whats best for this town. And Jud Perry better not dare stand in my way." Jud Perry, in Ben Mabrys opinion, had been standing in his way the whole of their lifetime and now, no matter what he might have to do, it was going to change. All of Dovers Landing was going to change. It was a declaration of war, waged, at first, behind the scenes in several sneaky anonymous ways. Jud Perry was alone now - his wife dead, his daughter dead from the excesses of the 60s, his only son gone off to Canada rather than fight in Vietnam. No one has heard from him since that final father-son battle. Juds defeat would be easy, Ben thought. Wasnt the whole village on his side? Well, not quite. There was Juds wifes dearest friend, Martha, who harbored a secret life that no one in Dovers Landing suspected. There was Sam, his one-time English teacher. There was Dr. John, the villages only veterinarian. And - miraculously - there was his son Andy whose surreptitious return to Dovers Landing under a false name, wearing a face-concealing beard, and accompanied by his wife and two children, lent courage to Jud Perrys heart, and strength to his will to fight. The struggle escalates - as it does in all wars - until arson and attempted murder brings everything to a climax. The mystery of where Andy has been all the missing years is as startling to Jud, as is the long held family secret Jud is finally forced to reveal to Andy.

Kris Bjornsen, along with thousands of others, found herself herded by forcewhips into the hold of giant spaceships to be transported to the slave compounds of an alien planet. And even then it wasn't over. For, after a partially successful escape attempt, Kris was once more shipped across space - to an apparently empty and untamed planet. The Catteni just dumped an assorted load of humans and aliens on the strange world and left them to see what would happen. Brilliantly the refugees began to organize themselves into a pattern of survival. The planet was eerie and not as empty as it seemed. For someone - something - had built giant storage barns - the planet was being used as a huge larder - for an entity they could not comprehend. As Kris and her patrol set out to explore the enigmatic world she had yet another problem to contend with - the presence of Zainal, the high-ranking patrician Catteni who had been abandoned with the rest of them. Zainal was strong, brilliant, and...kind, and Kris was puzzled by his presence, his personality, and above all by the tenuous tie she felt towards this man - who was not a man but one of the hated Catteni.
