Praise for The Funny Moon

“A long-term relationship gone stale, a summer of searching, celebrity cameos, and a comic sensibility…The pace is consistent and the tone light…A brisk, humorous story of a middle-aged couple in an unmoored marriage, stumbling toward safe harbor.”
—Kirkus Reviews

“Janet Evanovich meets Wallace Stegner—a very funny, very well crafted novel.”
—C. B. Clemency


“Highly entertaining…funny, insightful and true.”

—Lorenzo di Bonaventura, producer of the Transformers film series

“The Funny Moon is a rare mix of humor, pathos, and surprise, which will draw you in, sweep you along, and keep you laughing.”
—Christopher Merrill, author of Self-Portrait with Dogwood


“A delightful comic (and cosmic) romp with vibrant characters, poignant midlife awakenings, and magical surprises."
—Sera Beak, author of The Red Book


“A wildly entertaining journey through a maze of mid-life and marital madness, with a couple of quirky seekers, and the most hilarious sex scene ever.”
–Marisa Smith, playwright


“Natural and unforced, multilayered and perfectly keyed…with characters rendered in vivid, quirky 3D and scenes so well played, they unfold the way you don’t expect. The writing is strong and assured, with the feeling of a handmade wooden boat: simple and beautiful, nothing to add and nothing to take away.”
—Dave Greeley


“Set in a small New England college town, where tongues do wag, The Funny Moon is a whimsical, romantic–and touching–romp about finding your true north.”
—Meg Lukens Noonan, author of The Coat Route
