This was a challenging one for me. Spanbauer's The Man Who Fell In Love With The Moon is absolutely luminous - a truly exquisite union of story and prose. I found Now In The Hour to be a bit top-heavy: beautiful prose telling a largely unremarkable story. The ending draws things to a satisfying conclusion, but the things being concluded are not - up to the last 100 or so pages - very compelling. All in all a likeable novel, but not the transcendent ride you're used to with Tom Spanbauer.
