What People are Saying About This

Mary Mackey

... Part magic, part myth, part dream, part prayer, New Moon ... leads straight to the depths of the unconscious.
— Mary Mackey, (author of The Year the Horses Came , The Horses at the Gate , Season of Shadows and The Dear Dance of Eros )

Ishmael Reed

... Richard Grossinger writes a brilliant novel about a young man's passage into adulthood. New Moon is a departure for the Jewish American novel, as well - no longer obsessed with old world issues, and not finding solace in the illusion of an American Promise Land.
— Ishmael Reed (author of Flight to Canada and Shrove-Tide in New Orleans )


A memoir of baseball, high school, and Jewish New York in the 50's. New Moon is also a portrait of a defenseless consciousness uncovering itself in the world simulatenously. The spellbinding tales and terrifying intimacy of Richard Grossinger's book puts it, for me, in the company of Frederick Exley's A Fan's Notes and Annie Dillard's An American Childhood . An unforgettable reading experience.
— Jonathan Lethem, (author of Gun, with Ocassional Music and Amnesia Moon )
