'Happy' by Richard Powers is about astrobiologist Theo Byrne who has found a promising way to scour the entire cosmos in search of life. In addition, since the death of his wife, he has been taking care of the upbringing of his gifted nine-year-old son on his own. Robin is an endearing, gentle boy who spends hours drawing detailed drawings of endangered animals and is upset by the slightest bad news about the climate. He wants to complete his dead mother's mission: to save nature from destruction.
Robin is also about to be expelled from school for punching a classmate in the face. Theo will eventually seek refuge in an experimental neurofeedback therapy for him. And meanwhile, he takes the boy to other planets, all the while supporting Robin's efforts to save Earth against his better judgement.
A tale of a father's uncompromising love for his son, Wild is Richard Powers' most intimate and poignant novel yet.
