Moonglow reveals the confession of a man who was on his deathbed and the narrator called him as ‘my grandfather’. Moonglow is a saga of bloodshed and feat, insanity, of desire and sex and marriage, of experiential ambiguity and model rocket science, of gleaming ambitions and manic supports of American technological achievement at mid century. Above all it is the tale of devastating effects and ingenious potential of the forces of keeping secrets and telling lies which works to destroy people.
It is the depiction of complicated but sensual love between Michael’s grandfather and his grandmother, a broken woman who was grown up in war torn France. This book is a tour from the Jewish slums of prior to the war South Philadelphia to the attack of Germany, from a Florida seclusion village to the punitive bliss of NewYork’s Wallkill jail, from the prime of the space agenda to the dusk of the American Century.
