Christopher Meeks's new novel, The Brightest Moon of the Century has received over two dozen reviews so far, including:
A thoughtful, fresh-feeling portrait of how we become who we are. --Minneapolis Star-Tribune.
I've gone from being an admirer of [Meeks's] work to a full-blown fan--bordering, perhaps, on groupie. --Small Press Reviews
"The Brightest Moon of the Century" is one man's story, a very ordinary man at that, but Christopher Meeks has filled that story with enough interesting characters and episodes to remind just how limitless and filled with surprises even the most ordinary of lives can be. --Book Chase
