Review of Becoming Moon by Craig A. Hart

Becoming Moon is a gem of literary magic that explores the psyche of a troubled writer.

Nigel Moon doesn't trust happy artists - looks like he just found the perfect writer to ghost-write for him.

Everyone has got skeletons in the closet and Hart's main character is no exception. Stripped-down and bare-boned, Becoming Moon explores the ramifications of growing up with oppressively religious parents, living with the guilt of dishonesty, and witnessing wicked acts. Hart's MC seems to embrace the expression "faking it until he makes it," sedating his troubled conscience with booze, a little weed, women, and recollections of the Holy Ghost while he struggles with his capabilities as a writer.

A great read that had me drooling on my Kindle in the wee hours of the morning.
