Abstract:

In 1972, Mark Moskowitz, then 18, read John Seelye's review of The Stones of Summer in The New York Times Book Review and immediately bought a copy. He bogged down less than a hundred pages in and gave up, finally giving the yellowed paperback another pass in 1998. On that reading, the book struck a chord, and he saw why it was so rapturously received. Looking for more, Moskowitz did a search for Mossman works produced between 1972 and 1998--and found nothing. So he set out to find Mossman, pursuing countless dead ends, talking to critics, agents, book designers, and editors, none of whom had answers. A commercial producer by trade, Moskowitz grabbed a 16-mm camera to capture his hunt for posterity, and at its best, this documentary hints at the powerful author/audience bond that can transcend race, class, region, and time itself.
