The Heart of a Comet is a collection of poems and short stories offering the tale of Comet, who fell from the sky to an unfamiliar plane of existence. On his quest to return home, he has many life-altering encounters that completely change his perspective of what it means to love and live.

Encountering these truths, the lines between dreams and reality tend to blur, creating a new mosaic in his ultimate revelation: the internal lesson of what finding purpose truly means. What are we here for? Why do we experience the things that we do, and why do we react to them in the ways that we do?

All questions are posed with seemingly infinite answers. In this conceptual miscellany, author Pages Matam touches on topics of the immigrant experience to fatherhood, and love in all of its beautiful but also often tragically traumatic faces. As the tale unfolds, we become swallowed by a self-reflective journey with a destination that could only be sought from one's own soul-searching heart...the Heart of a Comet.
