Product description

Winner of the 2013 "Costa First Novel Award "(under the title "The Shock of the Fall")"" "A stunning novel. Ambitious and exquisitely realized . . . clearly the work of a major new talent." --S. J. Watson, "New York Times" bestselling author of "Before I Go to Sleep"While on vacation with their parents, Matthew Homes and his older brother snuck out in the middle of the night. Only Matthew came home safely. Ten years later, Matthew tells us, he has found a way to bring his brother back...What begins as the story of a lost boy turns into a story of a brave man yearning to understand what happened that night, in the years since, and to his very person. Unafraid to look at the shadows of our hearts, Nathan Filer's rare and brilliant debut "Where the Moon Isn't "shows us the strength that is rooted in resilience and love.

Review quote

"This is a tale told beautifully in the innocent voice of a perennial child and misfit . . . Filer deftly paints a series of vignettes of Matthew's chaotic search for solace that successively unveils the mysteries surrounding his brother." -"Washington Independent Review of Books"
