dc.description.abstract Fifth Moon is a novel told from multiple, third-person perspectives. It explores the fragmentary nature of memory, as well as the gaps and failures of imagination in confronting the locus of trauma, namely: the unexpected death of a parent. At the heart of the story is eighteen-year-old Nick Franzic, who is drawn to the teachings of a tenth-century British mystic, a possible stand-in for the father whose loss Nick still grieves. Nick both narrates and is narrated by those around him: his best friend, Clara Shuh, ailing housewife Iris Klessinger, and “frenemy” J.P. Brulé. Through the use of devices such as filmic point-of-view and free-indirect style, the novel’s narrative fragments accrue into a cohesive picture of Nick in a moment of personal anguish, social estrangement, and ultimate transformation. en_US
