From the bestselling author of House of Leaves and The Familiar comes a whimsical parable for adults and children alike. Kai has a little blue kite he keeps in the back of a closet without a light. Ever since a childhood loss, Kai has feared flying again, even though the little blue kite may prove the only way to escape the Murk, a place of fear and sadness where Kai now lives. And then one day, for no other reason than a magical little bit of extra time, Kai dares to try again. So starts a great adventure that will take Kai far above the bleak clouds of doubts and preconceptions to a wide, open place where all is possible if one is kind, bold and finally brave enough to let go. But is Kai brave enough to let go? Mark Z. Danielewski gives us a story about facing fears at any age in order to do good on behalf of those we know well, those we've just met, and even those we'll never meet.
