On a humid summer day, the phones begin to ring: disaster has struck. Chateau de Sully, a Boeing 707 chartered to ferry home more than one hundred of Atlanta's most prominent citizens from a European jaunt, crashed in Paris shortly after takeoff. Overnight, the city of Atlanta changes. Left behind are children, spouses, lovers, and friends faced with renegotiating their lives--the hedonism of the sixties and the urgency of the civil rights movement at the city's doorstep.

With Visible Empire, Hannah Pittard "brings her kaleidoscopic perspective to a catastrophe on an epic scale" (Los Angeles Times). Captivating and ambitious--and inspired by true events--this is a story of race, class, power, privilege, and, ultimately, of promise and hope.
