I Sold the Moon!

by Barry McArdle | 01 June 2007
PAPERBACK
Category: General Biography
Synopsis
This is a true story from the 1970's of the original Moon Man, a silver-suited street performer and comic philosopher. For ten years, Moon Man criss-crossed America selling 'lunar real estate', transportation not provided. Told in the first person, "I Sold the Moon" explores how a young man, fresh out of college, could get the idea that he could claim the moon and then sell it. Moon Man's evolution is paralleled throughout by more earthly concerns including his evolving romance in the turbulent days of sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll. The reader will be swept along as the Moon Man discovers and refines the best way to sell his newly claimed property. This includes the progression from door-to-door selling, in a coat and tie, selling 20 moon acres a day, to appearing in a custom-tailored 'moon suit' on college campuses, and selling more than 400 'acres' in two hours. The moon trail takes the Moon Man to almost every college campus in California, onto local television programs, eventually into the Midwest, New York and ultimately to Ireland. "I Sold the Moon" tells of the evolution of an idea pursued against all logic and convention while weaving a story of passion, heartache and ultimate redemption.
