Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Since the war and the bombs, Hatfork, Wyoming, is a sick town, full of mutants and sexual deviants. Chaos lives in the projection booth in the abandoned Multiplex, trying to blot out his present, unable to remember his past.

Then the local tyrant, Kellogg, reveals to him over a can of dog food in the desert that the bombs never fell. The truth is a little more complicated.

With a fur-covered girl named Melinda, Chaos sets out on a journey, following the empty highway to the western edge of the American Nightmare. The truth, he finds, is more than a little complicated. His pursuit of a missing identity and a stolen love will pull him and Melinda deep into a kaleidoscope of broken realities.

The truth, he finds, is indeed a little more complicated. Or a lot...

Review:

"At its heart, this novel remains a simple story...but Lethem uses it successfully as a springboard for both a commentary on American culture and a convincing portrait of his main character." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"The author of Gun, with Occasional Music embues his second novel with a breathtaking vision of a world in flux. Lethem's prose is as flexible and memorable as the evocative story he tells." Library Journal

Review:

"An author to be reckoned with....[W]ith Amnesia Moon, Lethem slips out of the shadow of his predecessors to deliver a droll, downbeat vision that is both original and persuasive." Newsweek

Review:

"An intriguing and accomplished novel: funny, inventive, and ultimately cheering." The Washington Post

Review:

"A hip, updated conflation of Harlan Ellison's A Boy and His Dog and Jim Thompson's The Alcoholics. Jonathan Lethem escorts us down an impossibly post-terminal Route 66, kicking and screaming and loving every minute of it." Barry Gifford, author of Wild at Heart

Review:

"In Amnesia Moon you find yourself in a slippery, crazy, and frightening dream, and you do not want to wake up." MC 900 Foot Jesus
