Amnesia Moon
Paperback - English

The much-anticipated second novel from the author of Gun, with Occasional Music. Since the war and the bombs, Hatfork, Wyoming, is a broken-down, mutant-ridden town. Young Chaos lives in a projection booth therem trying to blot out his present, unable to remember his past. Then the local tyrant, Kellog, reveals to him over a can of dog food that the bombs never fell. The truth is a little more complicated. . . . ...In Jonathan Lethem's wryly funny novel, we meet a young man named Chaos, who's living in a movie theater in post-apocalyptic Wyoming, drinking alcohol, and eating food out of cans.

It's an unusual and at times unbearable existence, but Chaos soon discovers that his post-nuclear reality may have no connection to the truth. So he takes to the road with a girl named Melinda in order to find answers. As the pair travels through the United States they find that, while each town has been affected differently by the mysterious source of the apocalypse, none of the people they meet can fill in their incomplete memories or answer their questions. Gradually, figures from Chaos's past, including some who appear only under the influence of intravenously administered drugs, make Chaos remember some of his forgotten life as a man named Moon...."An author to be reckoned with . . . both original and persuasive." --Newsweek
In Amnesia Moon, we meet a young man named Chaos, who's living in a movie theater in post-apocalyptic Wyoming, drinking heavily and eating food out of cans.
Chaos soon discovers that his post-nuclear reality may be a false one. So he takes to the road with a girl named Melinda in order to find the answers. As they travel through America they find that while each town has been affected differently by the mysterious source of the apocalypse, no one can fill in their incomplete memories. Gradually, figures from Chaos's past, including some who appear only under the influence of intravenously administered drugs, make Chaos remember some of his forgotten life as a man named Moon.
"Where Jack Kerouac and Philip K. Dick will meet Mel Gibson's Road Warrior and Vladimir Nabokov's Humbert Humbert after the bombs have fallen on America . . . Almost everybody is bereft . . . they wait for Godot and gestalt. If Amnesia Moon is Pynchon Lite, like Pynchon's Vineland, it is also the Philip K. Dickiest of Lethem's novels."--John Leonard, The New York Review of Books
