Winner of ForeWord Magazine‘s Book of the Year Award, receiving the Gold Seal in Literary Fiction.
Told with the compression and force of a poem, The Vanishing Moon is a novel of desire, unyielding necessity, and the people and places that inevitably disappear from our lives. Opening against the backdrop of the Great Depression, Coulson leads us on a heart-wrenching journey across two generations of an extraordinary midwestern family. This debut novel offers us a chorus of candid and poignant voices reminiscent of Sherwood Anderson and Carson McCullers.
