Summary
In 1972 Mark Moskowitz read a New York Times book review of "The stones of summer" by Dow Mossman, a title which later in Moskowitz's life would become an object of obsession. Though he shelved the book for 25 years, Moskowitz finally read it and was amazed at its ingenuity. He was shocked that its one-time author never penned another book. Determined to solve the mystery, Moskowitz documented his research project in finding the forgotten author and getting to the bottom of the publishing mystery of how so many great books of literature, and great authors, just disappear
