New Moon: A Coming-of-Age Tale traces the author's path through grade school at P. S. 6, "group" in Central Park, high school at Horace Mann, and college at Amherst, while recalling Freudian psychoanalysis, Grossinger's Hotel in the Catskills, Color War at Camp Chipinaw, '50s rock 'n' roll, teen romance, the mysterious world of tarot cards, discovery of Carl Jung, and spiritual and political initiation. This is not the paperback of the 1996 hardcover but its metamorphosis and realization.
