Strange Angel: The Otherworldly Life of Rocket Scientist John Whiteside Parsons

'“Pendle weaves a fascinating yarn. . . . He deftly and seemingly effortlessly leads his readers through the technical aspects of Parsons’ work. You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to enjoy it.” —The Seattle Times   “Pasadena’s famous Craftsman mansions disgorge their ghosts in this rambunctiously funny, deliriously weird, and incredibly true story of a space-science pioneer turned lustful witch.” —Mike Davis, author of City of Quartz   “As a history of space travel, Strange Angel is a cornerstone. This is your book if you want to start reading up on the space age. Highly recommended.” —Ray Bradbury'
