9780802136633: The Man Who Fell in Love with the Moon: A Novel

Set against the harsh reality of an unforgiving landscape and culture, The Man Who Fell in Love with the Moon provides a vision of the Old West unlike anything seen before. The narrator, Shed, is one of the most memorable characters in contemporary fiction: a half-Indian bisexual boy who lives and works at the Indian Head Hotel in the tiny town of Excellent, Idaho. It's the turn of the century, and the hotel carries on a prosperous business as the town's brothel. The eccentric characters working in the hotel provide Shed with a surrogate family, yet he finds in himself a growing need to learn the meaning of his Indian name, Duivichi-un-Dua, given to him by his mother, who was murdered when he was twelve. Setting off alone across the haunting plains, Shed goes in search of an identity among his true people, encountering a rich pageant of extraordinary characters along the way. Although he learns a great deal about the mysteries and traditions of his Indian heritage, it is not until Shed returns to Excellent and witnesses a series of brutal tragedies that he attains the wisdom that infuses this exceptional and captivating book.

About the Author:

Tom Spanbauer is the author of the novel Faraway Places. he lives in Portland, Oregon, and New Yoke City.

From AudioFile:

Welcome, Hall Closet Book Company, to the ranks of the high-class audio publishers. Here is a gutsy book selection matched to a talented reader who is exactly the right choice for this audacious role. The lyrical way this production can amuse and provoke is realized through the earnestness of reader Kenneth Martines. Like this alternately ribald and wrenching novel, Martines elegantly commands language to foster acceptance. For the narrating character, Shed, so called after the building behind the brothel where he grows up and works, Martines endows words with a magical authority. As expressed by Martines, Shed's fascination with words can be contagious. D.J. Winner of AUDIOFILE's Earphones Award (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
