If that’s the first line of a novel, the rest of it had better measure up, which The Almost Moon definitely does. Alice Sebold’s novel takes on a subject very familiar to Baby Boomers: caring for an aged parent with dementia. It looks without flinching at the love and the hatred that a grown daughter may bring to the task, what growing-up experiences have marked her, and where she can go when she can’t go home again.
