Publisher's Summary

Becoming Moon is a coming-of-age story about a young man struggling to be himself amid pressure from a repressive family. Following his dream of becoming a writer, he turns from everything he knows and enters adulthood embittered, angry, and resentful.

As he struggles to make a name for himself, he is presented with the opportunity of a lifetime. Although it requires a betrayal of his principles as an artist, he resigns himself to what appears to be fate. The compromise brings money and recognition, but these are fleeting, and he soon finds himself caught in a web of depression and financial hardship.

Desperate, the writer begins taking trips to Michigan's Upper Peninsula, where he hopes to reconnect with his muse. During one of these excursions, he meets Nigel Moon, a grizzled author nearing the end of his career. Moon gives the writer a second golden opportunity and the chance to prove himself in the face of personal doubts - but only if the writer is able to set his past aside.

Hart's stripped-down prose brings the listener into direct contact with the story and its characters. Equal parts witty and dark and wry and tragic, the text uses simplicity as its focus. Raw and honest, Becoming Moon is an unforgettable story about exorcising past demons and finding personal redemption.

Becoming Moon

I wasn’t sure what to expect when I started Becoming Moon, but I was immediately drawn into the elegant prose and gritty world of the unnamed protagonist. One (previous) paperback reviewer said it best: Mr. Hart reminds us that we are a product of our choices, and we often struggle to do the right thing. I read the book over the course of one day, and my only regret is that it wasn’t longer. I would love to learn more about the characters, and hopefully Hart will revisit them in future works.
