From Philip Caputo--the author of A Rumor of War, The Longest Road, and Some Rise By Sin--comes a captivating mosaic of stories set in a small town where no act is private and the past is never really past. Hunter’s Moon is set in Michigan’s wild, starkly beautiful Upper Peninsula, where a cast of recurring characters move into and out of each other’s lives, building friendships, facing loss, confronting violence, trying to bury the past or seeking to unearth it. Once-a-year lovers, old high-school buddies on a hunting trip, a college professor and his wayward son, a middle-aged man and his grief-stricken father, come together, break apart, and, if they’re fortunate, find a way forward. Hunter’s Moon offers an engaging, insightful look at everyday lives but also a fresh perspective on the way men navigate in today’s world.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A brilliant series of interconnected stories about relationships and the myriad ways we both rescue and disappoint the people we love most. Hunter’s Moon is about parents and children, the death of old friends, the recovery from loss and near loss. In it, Caputo continues to chronicle of ups and downs of our collective character, our better angels along with our worse ones. He proves himself to be a master investigator of the human psyche in the mold of Chekov, Tolstoy, and Bellow.” Philipp Meyer, New York Times bestselling author
“Set in the wilds of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, these linked stories deftly probe the emotional wounds of men with lost jobs, bruised egos and failed expectations: an unflinching reality check on the state of middle-age manhood today.” New York Times Book Review
