Moonglow

Editorial reviews

Moonglow

Moonglow is a wacky novel, for sure, replete with some strange twists that don’t quite make sense unless you’re willing to just suspend belief and go with the narrative flow, disjointed as it may be.

This is a novel that, despite its chronological lurches, feels entirely sure footed, propulsive, the work of a master at his very best.

Moonglow is a novel about faith in storytelling itself.

Whether the characters are real or fiction, he certainly got me interested and kept my attention. Heartily recommended.

Chabon has produced an excellent novel but not a great one.

The book is both a hotchpotch stroll down memory lane, and an exercise in exploring the slippery nature of truth, memory and what makes a compelling story.
