Product description

'It was the summer that men first walked on the moon. I was very young back then, but did not believe there would ever be a future. I wanted to live dangerously, to push myself as far as I could go, and then see what happened when I got there.' So begins the mesmerising narrative of Marco Stanley Fogg - orphan, child of the 1960s, a quester by nature. Moon Palace is his story - a novel that spans three generations, from the early years of this century to the first lunar landings, and moves from the canyons of Manhattan to the cruelly beautiful landscape of the American West. Filled with suspense, unlikely coincidences, wrenching tragedies and marvellous flights of lyricism and erudition, the novel carries the reader effortlessly along with Marco's search - for love, for his unknown father, and for the key to the elusive riddle of his origins and his fate. "Clever: very. Surprising: always - Auster is a master." (The Times).

Editorial reviews

This tells the story of Marco Stanley Fogg - orphan, child of the sixties - spanning three generations. We move from the early years of this century to the first lunar landing, and from Manhatten to the landscape of the American West. (Kirkus UK)
