Fatoumata Kébé and Albert Forns

The Moon Is a Novel

With L’altra cara de la Lluna (Once Upon a Moon: History, Myths and Legends – Angle Editorial/Blackie Books), Fatoumata Kébét pays tribute to our satellite, offering a cultural history of the Moon that reads like a gripping novel.  This brilliant French astrophysicist talks with the writer and journalist Albert Forns, ranging from the myths and legends that different civilisations have devoted to the queen of the night through to the space race and the influence the Moon has had in films, songs, and even the expressions we use.
