The “beautiful and haunting” (San Francisco Chronicle) tale of an orphan’s search for love, for his unknown father, and for the key to the elusive riddle of his fate, from the author of the forthcoming 4 3 2 1:  A Novel

Marco Stanley Fogg is an orphan, a child of the sixties, a quester tirelessly seeking the key to his past, the answers to the ultimate riddle of his fate. As Marco journeys from the canyons of Manhattan to the deserts of Utah, he encounters a gallery of characters and a series of events as rich and surprising as any in modern fiction.

Beginning during the summer that men first walked on the moon, and moving backward and forward in time to span three generations, Moon Palace is propelled by coincidence and memory, and illuminated by marvelous flights of lyricism and wit. Here is the most entertaining and moving novel yet from an author well known for his breathtaking imagination.

From New York Times-bestselling author Paul Auster (The New York Trilogy).

Editorial Reviews

“Auster is a masterly storyteller. . .Moon Palace shimmers with mysteries.” – The Washington Post Book World   “Enormously compelling. . .Auster has a rare combination of talent, scope, and audacity.” – The New Republic   “Good hearted and hopeful, verbally exuberant.” – The New York Times Book Review   “Reads like a composite of works by Fielding, Dickens, and Twain. . .Auster has a lot of fun concocting Marco’s adventures, almost has much fun as one has in reading them.” – Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times
