Honey on the Moon

Maude Hutchins’ weird and dark book dives into the honeymoon world, the immediate post-marriage era between young Sigourney Logan and forty-year-old Derek Wagstaff, who for some reason has married Sigourney because she resembles his gay lover, Peter. The tale follows Sigourney’s loss of identity, gradual descent into madness imagining she has a gun and it shooting it at Derek. She laughs off all the obvious signs of Peter/Derek’s relationship (matching bracelets, Peter’s key to the house), ignores Derek’s odd makeout session with sixty-five year old Marie.
