"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

"WHERE THE MOON ISN'T is a stunning novel. Ambitious and exquisitely realized, it's by turns shocking, harrowing and heartrending. The writing is so accomplished it's hard to believe it's a debut -- it's clearly the work of a major new talent." --S.J. Watson, "New York Times" bestselling author of "Before I Go to Sleep""A page-turner, tender and tragic, told in a vulnerable voice that steps in and out of madness. Vivid and haunting, I keep replaying this story in my mind, reliving it, long after having read the final page." --Lisa Genova, "New York Times" bestselling author of "Still Alice" and "Love Anthony""I have become an evangelist for "Where the Moon Isn't." It won me heart and soul with it's crazy, wild, fine voice, its bravura, its ambition, its harrowing corners, and the dense rich tiny core of love at its glowing, radiant center. In Matthew's admittedly hard world, the tiniest kindnesses echo and amplify, returning to him larger and louder, until they each become glorious---huge bursts of such grace and truth that more than once, I had to stop reading and weep at the sheer hope-soaked beauty of it. I loved this book cover to cover and word by word; I want to give it to everyone I care for, and I want to keep it for myself to reread over and over. You will, too." --Joshilyn Jackson, "New York Times" bestselling author of "A Grown-Up Kind of Pretty""Original and affecting. Filer's ability to capture Matthew's voice shows a special talent." --Heidi W. Durrow, "New York Times" bestselling author of "The Girl Who Fell from the Sky ""In the ruins of a family exploded by grief, a brilliant madman wrestles a narrative from his disintegrated life. What emerges is both quietly horrifying and surprisingly beautiful: a portrait of family love. Unsentimental, frank, and strange, Filer's narrator is the most likable nut since Kesey's 'Chief.' He's funny and sad and mad, and he brought me through smiles to tears and back. What moved me the mosty
