Description

Having won a number of awards, Robin Gregory's The Improbable Wonders of Moojie Littleman is being lauded as a classic. A haunting, visionary tale spun in the magical realist tradition of Gabriel Garcia Marquez's One Hundred Years of Solitude and Salman Rushdie's Midnight's Children, the profoundly unique voice and heart-stirring narrative recall great works of fiction that explore the universal desire to belong.

Early 1900s, Western America. A lonely, disabled boy with a nasty temper and uncontrolled mystical powers, Moojie is taken by his father to his grandfather's wilderness farm. There, Moojie befriends an otherworldly clan of outcasts and wants to prove he can fit in with them. Following a series of misadventures, magical and mystical, Moojie questions his selfish attitude, and is summoned by the call to a great destiny ... if only he can survive one last terrifying trial.

Review quote

"Gregory's storytelling skills are inspired and make this mythologically-based, historical novel a delight to read. Some passages are so lovely that I found myself rereading them to more fully appreciate the masterful blending of sound, sense and meaning."--JACK MAGNUS, Reader's Favorite (5 Stars) "Wow! Wonderful lyricism and magical reality. Captivating."--LISA ROJANY, author, editor "Robin Gregory's writing is both mythical and mystical, carrying the reader along the edges of reality. Moojie's tale is gripping and I couldn't put it down." --VERONICA ENTWISTLE, BBS Radio
