Hunter's Moon: A Novel in Stories (CD-Audio)
One of our favorites this year. A searing novel in stories of men coping with PTSD, set here in the Upper Peninsula. Caputo knows and loves this area, and it shows. Great for fans of Jim Harrison, the outdoors, and literary fiction.— Dana, Lea, & Mike
From Philip Caputo--the author of A Rumor of War, The Longest Road, and Some Rise By Sin--comes a captivating mosaic of stories set in a small town where no act is private and the past is never really past.
Hunter’s Moon is set in Michigan’s wild, starkly beautiful Upper Peninsula, where a cast of recurring characters move into and out of each other’s lives, building friendships, facing loss, confronting violence, trying to bury the past or seeking to unearth it. Once-a-year lovers, old high-school buddies on a hunting trip, a college professor and his wayward son, a middle-aged man and his grief-stricken father, come together, break apart, and, if they’re fortunate, find a way forward.
Hunter’s Moon offers an engaging, insightful look at everyday lives but also a fresh perspective on the way men navigate in today’s world.
