Editorial Reviews Review

When customers seek their memories in Half Remembered Things, Kevin Grierson's New York shop, they gawk at the price tags attached to the toys of their childhood. Kevin reflects, "The past is always just a bit more expensive than we thought possible."

And so it is for Kevin, a successful middle-aged antiques dealer whose past is exacting a price: he journeys down dark memories of peddling his young body to strangers, destroying himself with booze and speed, striving to become predator rather than prey on the streets of New York in the 1960s. The problem, as he sees it, is that his Shadow--more than an alternate self but less than an independent doppelgänger--is the bad guy, the one who would bring back the old habits. But his Shadow is not purely evil, and Kevin is not purely good. The two of them have much to learn if they ever hope to be reconciled.

Minions of the Moon is an absorbing, beautifully wrought novel of dark fantasy--its complex web of stories told in interweaving strands, its dreamlike images balanced by a clean, matter-of-fact prose style. --Fiona Webster --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From Booklist

Kevin Grierson is just barely a '60s survivor, and the other him is even less so. The other him? Yes, for Kevin has a double he calls the Shadow, which was also what he called the alcoholic, abusive woman who often took the place of his mother. Not long after mother and her shadow died together, Kevin's started to "help" him, at first out of jams--like the one he got into getting blow jobs in dark corners of the Y--and then into drugs, drug dealing, and eventually big-time toping. Finally Kevin suppressed the Shadow, found a counselor who helped him sober up permanently, and got a profession as an antique toy dealer, thanks to George, who became his lover. Life continued to challenge him, of course. He and George separated, and George sickened with AIDS. An old friend's son was haunted by his dead addict father, and only Kevin knew and could help. Now a runaway teenager needs rescuing, especially since he has fallen in with the Shadow, who is back again, wraithlike with dissipation. Bowes deftly uses the addiction-as-doppelganger metaphor to add tension and verve to a rich, riveting story of dereliction and recovery. Superb popular fiction.
