Becoming Moon by Craig A. Hart is a moving story about a young man who dreams of making a name for himself as a writer. Growing up in a conservative family, he rejects his parents’ way of life and tries to follow his dream. As a struggling artist, he finally gets a shot at fame and money in a most unconventional and irregular way, but this proves to be short lived and fleeting. Desperate to come up with his next bestseller and trying to find his muse again, he meets the accomplished but aging writer, Nigel Moon. What follows is an unusual arrangement where he finds himself becoming Moon himself. Can he get rid of his past completely?
Becoming Moon unfolds with a young man going through his regular routine of taking a trip to the Upper Peninsula where he hopes to find the inspiration to write. This seems conventional enough, but then the story takes a dark and eccentric turn and this is when it demands our attention. Craig A. Hart surely understands the writer’s world. Becoming Moon is a satire of this world and a snapshot of publishing as well. But underneath the novel’s sometimes fragile surface lies the conviction that redemption entails an honest journey into your past and into yourself, and only then can one transform one’s self into a better person. Easy to read and at times humorous, at times dark, there is an honesty in this novel that is quite intriguing. I highly recommend this book!
