LITERARY CORNER: Even the Moon is Frightened of Me by Glen Paul Hammond


                                               Even the Moon is Frightened of Me--Video


Whether it is through a fist fight in a back alley or a face-to-face meeting with a revered movie star, in Even the Moon is Frightened of Me, Glen Paul Hammond’s characters attempt to define who they are by interacting somewhere in that space between relationship and violence.

Presented in three distinct parts and ending with an Epilogue, this collection of short stories dramatizes the archetypal themes of meaning, freedom, isolation and death by presenting characters who confront the vicissitudes of life while struggling to maintain their own sense of individuality.
