Moonglow by Chabon

Moonglow is a 2016 novel by Michael Chabon.

The book chronicles the life of Chabon’s grandfather, a WW2 soldier, engineer and rocket enthusiast who marries a troubled Jewish survivor from France and lives a challenging, wandering life in postwar America.

Chabon is a great writer. A great story teller.

But the device he used here — a memoir based on interviews with his Grandfather and others — didn’t work for me. The story was too rambling. It jumps around too much in time.

I had trouble paying attention.
