Publisher's Summary

Harry Moon romps through time right into your heart in this baroque and bawdy, delicious and daring, sexy and sinful contemporary-historical novel.

Journey from then to now with the Moon brothers: Nicki, who was born to be a gangster and loves activities such as breaking kneecaps; Stu, who adores women's clothing - so much so, in fact, that he wears dresses whenever possible; Stanley, who likes stimulants, depressants, and any other drug he can get hold of; and, finally, Harry, one of the greatest heroes since Don Quixote saw his first windmill.

This perfectly paced blending of comedy and drama is a novel that reaches to the heart of life itself. Four eccentric brothers move toward four parallel fates that echo the destinies of four eccentric ancestors. On the way they encounter sexual blackmail, petty crime, political radicalism, space-age illness, and last but ever so much more than least, maturation and purpose - disguised and hard to recognize to be sure, but theirs all the same.

The Phases of Harry Moon is violent and tender, inspired and earthy, and Harry himself is one of the most endearing, mad, and moving characters of fiction in the last decade. Harry Moon is a hero for everyone, and his world is our world - full of laughter and sighing and the bright if tenuous light of understanding.

"One is convinced that an outsize performer is trying his wings - a John Barth or a John Irving, with a touch of William Gaddis and maybe a dash of Kurt Vonnegut Jr." (The Chicago Tribune)

"...a joy to read." (The Associated Press)

"...reads like lightning." (Detroit Monthly)

"Where Sullivan belongs is on the best-seller lists." (Doug Allyn, Flint Journal)
