New York Times bestseller Aloft follows the life of Jerry Battle, whose favorite diversion is to take his small plane and fly solo over Long Island. When his daughter and her fiancEarrive from Oregon to announce their marriage plans and Theresa's dangerous pregnancy, he thinks back over his life and begins to face his disengagement with it and with his relationships with others: with his deceased wife, the circumstances of whose death he has never fully admitted to; with his former girlfriend, for whom he still longs; with his pregnant daughter, who refuses to address the cancer that is killing her; with his son, who is losing the family business; and with his father, who is in a nursing home. Aloft is a quiet yet intense study of family, the American dream, and the American character.
