A Novel in Stories
by Philip Caputo
Deckle Edge, August 2019
“A poignant and savage tribute to the wilds of the American landscape and to the wilds of the American soul. With Hunter’s Moon, Philip Caputo shows us, once again, why he is a giant of contemporary letters.” ―Elliot Ackerman, author of Waiting for Eden
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.
