It was the summer that man first walked on the moon. I was very young back then, I did not believe there would ever be a future…
Spanning three generations, Moon Palace is the story of Marco Stanley Fogg and his quest for identity in the modern world. Moving from the concrete canyons of Manhattan to the cruelly beautiful landscape of the American West, it is a meditation on and re-examination of America, art and the self, by one of America’s foremost authors.
I think I have read this book only because I don’t like lay down books without reading them till the end. This book frustrated me and bored me so much. The fact that there are so many coincidences occurring in the book, for example Fogg meeting his long-lost father and grand-father only by accident, that all realism and parts of the book’s fascination get lost. Also, the author’s way of starting every episode with its result, failed to hold my interest.
