Welcome to seedier side of Saint John, New Brunswick. This working class city on the shores of the Bay of Fundy is home to postman and amateur poet Charlie White. Charlie is a hopeless romantic who rediscovers the woman he longs for with a chance run-in with Prin. When his buddy Eddie Smythe finds himself dangerously in arears to the wrong guys, Charlie and Prin are drawn into a dangerous game of survival in this city on the Bay. Two hit men arrive to deliver a message to Eddie and unleashes a whirlwind of events around the city just as Charlie and Prin learn about a love they never knew they had and nearly left years ago. Full of memorable characters and told from the view of the world from the hard-scramble working class of Atlantic Canada, Edson’s tale shows the extent to which the everyday can spiral into the exceptional.
The original manuscript for The Moon is Real was the winner of the 2013 David Adams Richards Prize..
