A young woman in Paris is on a mission to achieve immortality. An office worker desperately tries to have an incompetent colleague fired. A husband and wife prepare to celebrate an important anniversary.

These stories of flash fiction all begin in a most unusual way: the opening sentence is part of the famous Edward Lear poem, The Owl and The Pussycat.

Or Maybe The Moon is a genre-defying collection of stories with the light-heartedness of a road trip film, the raw emotion of a wistful romance, with a sprinkling of grit and determination throughout.

The series of very short stories captures the spirit of works by Lorrie Moore mixed with a bit of Zora Neale Hurston. These stories will break your heart, only to put it right back together again. Readers are along for the ride as each story peeks into a crucial moment in time for each of the protagonists, from the first story to the last, right up to the touching final scene.
