In "Lost Moon Summer" young Sammy Walters spends the dog days of summer indulging in endless mischief in his pursuit of happiness. Equal parts idyllic and tumultuous, this period of Walter's life was never far from his thoughts in later years. Returning to the scene of his boyhood misadventures, Sam rekindles memories of simpler times and the magic summer he shared with his extended family and a handful of youthful delinquents.



Childhood memories burning bright, Sam Walters journeys back to his hometown, scene of a misspent boyhood. Revisiting places of elusive hopes, fears, and dreams where he spent hours dodging neighborhood bullies, trolling deliverymen, indulging in endless mischief and teaching his rowdy posse the art of making flame-throwing match guns, Walters rekindles recollections of simpler times and an unforgettable summer.


"If you liked The Christmas Story by Jean Shepherd, you should try Lost Moon Summer. You'll encounter the perilous sport of ice cream truck trolling, sleepaway camp, bicycle dreams…and wistfully wonderful lists: if the Iliad had been written in the Eisenhower era, Homer's catalogue of ships might have been replaced by these inventories of Swanson TV dinners, movie theater candy, pulp magazines, and macabre TV series. Lost Moon Summer is an elegantly evocative tale that unfolds in some place resembling New Haven, Connecticut at some time resembling the late 1950s revealing some corner of the twentieth-century American soul."
