This book is not Lord of the Rings, but it is a quest; and it is not Roots, but it is a story about the difficult and joyous search for your origins; and it is not Gilligans Island, but it is set on an island paradise.

"The Smell of the Moon's' shambling pace may be too much, but for the patient reader Kneubuhl offers indulgent character sketches and an observant but forgiving fable about community and family. The emphasis is on humour, understanding and small pleasures."

Janette Godfrey

"Told in the vivid technicolor hues of a masterful storyteller, 'The Smell of the Moon' is the moving story of an honest and charasmatic middle-aged man who leaves the safety of his life in search of a more relaxed existence...Like the taste of a strange, exotic food, dripping with sweetness you can't help but want more when you reach the end of the page."
