Gone for Good by Mark Childress

In his fifth novel, the much praised author of Crazy in Alabama gives us the wild, comic, and ultimately moving odyssey of a 1970s folk-rock star, Ben Superman Willis. Superman has been riding a wave of success in the years since the Beatles broke up and rock and roll wore itself out. But stardom is not what he thought it would be: the only time hes truly happy is when hes up in his plane, flying alone to the next concert, his son Ben Junior stashed at home in L.A., and his wife Alexa--a former Miss Southwest Louisiana--following along in a bus down below. One night, after a show in El Paso, he flies head-on into the adventure of his life. A fierce thunderstorm, an emergency landing in Mexico, and some mind-blowing dope send him thousands of miles off course to a perilous crash landing on a beautiful, mysterious tropical island--a vision of Paradise, and, on the beach, a remarkable female apparition. Back home, Alexa and Ben Junior are stunned by the news of Supermans disappearance. The out-of-this-world memorial concert at the Hollywood Bowl is no more than a brief distraction from the cataclysmic changes that occur when a man vanishes from the face of the earth. What they dont know, and what Superman will learn only slowly, is that hes very much alive, trapped against his will in a place where famous people go to disappear. Gone for Good is the story of Supermans life on this island, a collection of famous and notorious people from all over the world hiding a terrible secret. Its also the story of Ben Juniors search for his father, and a spiritual exploration of the mysteries of celebrity, success, money, love, sex . . . and magic.
