    ― Tom Spanbauer, quote from The Man Who Fell in Love with the Moon “A person without her or his own truth ain't a person at all, Ida said. Anybody who tells you different—is a jackass, and no longer deserves to be called human being.”. The Man Who Fell In Love With The Moon by Spanbauer, Tom and a great selection of related books, art and collectibles available now at

    Notes: Inspired by East of the Sun and West of the Moon by Peter Christen Asbjørnsen & Jørgen Moe. If you haven't read "East of the Sun and West of the Moon" – a beloved Norwegian fairy tale with nods to "Beauty and the Beast" and the myth of Cupid and Psyche – you'll still be able to follow this fic, though it will, of course, be much more fun if you know at least the basic storyline.   Having David Bowie play your space alien would make any sci fi movie a classic, but ‘The Man Who Fell to Earth’ works even without him—just check out the great novel that inspired the film.
