Summary (From the publisher):

In the three stories that comprise The Foreseeable Future, we encounter arresting and moving characters, set against large vistas, namely the future, its banquet of promises and terrifying consequences.

For Kayes Paschal in The Fare to the Moon this means leaving the black woman he loves, and for whom he has already left his wife and son, as he is called off to World War II.

In the title story, for Whit Wade, returning severely wounded from that same war and "dead" a long year afterwards, it will mean unearthing his life again, and all its possibilities, among his family and the people he loves.

And for Dean Walker, loyal father and son, football coach and troubled young husband, the protagonist of Back Before Day, the most important hours of his life till now will occur one hectic night before dawn breaks on a day that will be unlike any other in the knowledge and promise it brings.
