Please Don't Come Back from the Moon review ´ eBook or Kindle ePUB Dean Bakopoulos ✓ 3 characters read Please Don't Come Back from the Moon Shoe Wisconsin store and leaves a note I'm going to the moon it reads I took the cash The abandoned wives drink brawl and sleep around gradually settling down to make new lives and shaking off the belief in an American dream that like their. This book was a pleasant surprise The back cover of Please Don t Come Back from the Moon makes it seem like this is the story of a small suburban town outside of Detroit and all of the father s spontaneously leaving When I started the book I was expecting this to be the entire plot but by the end of the first chapter all of the father s have left and the wives and their children are left to fend for themselves That is the beginning of the real story Over the course of these almost 300 pages Bakopoulos follows Michael and his friends through their adolescence and their 20s as they grow up fall in love find jobs and struggle to find their own way in the world in the shadow of their own father s departures As the characters age and develop Please Don t Come Back from the Moon shows itself to be a wonderful coming of age story about the complexity of coming of age as a man in a blue color community during a declining economy One of my favorite themes of this book is how different characters choose to cope with the situation and how to fight the existential dread of waking up every day caring for your family and working a job that doesn t pay enough This is a problem that afflicts many people in our country but I think this book does a great job of showing how the shame of not being able to have a stable career like previous generations is a stigma that uniuely affects blue color men Bakopoulos also tackles the topic of mental illness in men and how they become increasingly isolated as they grow older Even though Michael and his friends got together regularly they barely ever talked about their problems and instead drowned their anxieties in alcohol and insulting each other This is one of the better books i ve read that talks about the issues men face in our society today I recommend it

THERE IS A SPOILER IN THIS REVIEW ALSO SORRY I M USING GOODREADS AS A JOURNAL IT IS LATE AND I HAVE FEELINGS AND THIS PLATFORM FEELS KIND OF SAFE IN SOME WAYAccording to U M English Department lore Dean Bakopoulos s subcon thesis was entitled Please Don t Come Back From the MoonTherein lies my only complaint about this book It prevented me from working on my own goddamn thesis for days Because the fucking protagonist is so fucking flawed and earnest it actually hurts and I loved him and rooted for him and was devastated for him and I haven t read a book in SO LONG that managed to inject so much dang humanity into a characterAlso someone please let me know why the New York Times called this magical realism That s actually crazy to me like sure there s some dream imagery but let s not get carried away and start calling every wacky thing we read magical realism Anyways I m sad I m sad this book is over and that there aren t books like it and I m sad for Michael the protagonist I m sad for all of the men in this story who thought their dads were on the moon because went to the moon is palatable than moved to Illinois and every reader knows that I m sad for the dads who left because by some work of ACTUAL magic or just pure genius Bakopoulos made me feel that too
