Description

Moonglow unfolds as a deatGEBed confession. An old man, his tongue loosened by powerful painkillers, tells stories to his grandson, uncovering a history long buried. From the Jewish slums of pre-war South Philadelphia to the invasion of Germany, from a Florida retirement village to the penal utopia of a New York Prison, Moonglow collapses an era into a single life and a lifetime into a single week.

Moonglow unfolds as a deathbed confession.

An old man, his tongue loosened by powerful painkillers, his memory stirred by the imminence of death, tells stories to his grandson, uncovering bits and pieces of a history long buried.

Why did he try to strangle a former business partner with a telephone cord?
What was he thinking when he and a buddy set explosives on a bridge in Washington, D.C.?

What did he feel while he hunted down Wernher von Braun in Germany?
And what did he see in the young girl he met in Baltimore after returning home from the war?
