The Moon and the Son: An Imagined Conversation
2005, John Canemaker
Regrettably, I found this semi-autobiography about the son of a "connected" man to be a jumbled mess, both structurally and stylistically. Consequently, I felt nothing for the son as he imagined pestering his dead father for explanations as to why his childhood was so miserable; instead, I wondered why he didn't ask these questions while his father was still alive. Thus, given that the answers were speculative, it casts considerable doubt on their veracity.
