       Additional Information  
     
      Clare and Bink Fischer have a love so strong they're not about to let a little thing like death get in their way. She was a forthright young art student with the heart of a battered humanist looking for a class to complete her graduation requirement. He was a quiet budding writer experiencing frequent flashbacks of Vietnam and teaching a literature course on "all those things that bring a thought to the head and a lump to the throat."
    Neither expected the plane to crash.

    Clare drove Bink to the airport that blizzardy day. He was late. His flight left in twenty minutes. He jumped out of the VW, gave Clare a quick hug and a kiss and disappeared behind the sliding glass doors of the National terminal forever. Or did he?

    Alternating smoothly between past and present, fantasy and reality, Live From Earth traces Clare and Bink's extraordinary relationship from its innocent beginnings at the University of Iowa to the end of life and beyond. . .
