Summary
"Selected from the country's leading literary journals and publications-Crazyhorse, Colorado Review, The Nervous Breakdown, Creative Nonfiction, Georgia Review, Gulf Coast, The Missouri Review, The Normal School, and others-Man in the Moon brings together essays in which sons, daughters, and fathers explore the elusive nature of this intimate relationship and find unique ways to frame and understand it: through astronomy, arachnology, storytelling, map-reading, television, puzzles, DNA, and so on. In the collection's title essay, Bill Capossere considers the inextricable link between his love of astronomy and memories of his father: "The man in the moon is no stranger to me," he writes. "I have seen his face before, and it is my father's, and his father's, and my own." Other essays include Dinty Moore's "Son of Mr. Green Jeans: A Meditation on Missing Fathers," in which Moore lays out an alphabetic investigation of fathers from popular culture-Ward Cleaver, Jim Anderson, Ozzie Nelson-while ruminating on his own absent father and hesitation to become a father himself. In "Plot Variations," Robin Black attempts to understand, through the lens of teaching fiction to creative writing students, her inability to attend her father's funeral. Deborah Thompson tries to reconcile her pride in her father's pioneering research in plastics and her concerns about their toxic environmental consequences in "When the Future Was Plastic." At turns painfully familiar, comic, and heartbreaking, the essays in this collection also deliver moments of searing beauty and hard-earned wisdom"--
