Thomas Moran has made a wonderful debut as a fiction author with this compelling, chilling, moving tale of Niki Lukasser growing up in Nazi Austria with a Jew, Dr. Weiss, walled up for his own protection, in the barn. This is an unusual story but it is created and built up in ways that make it believable. No good deed or bad will go unpunished and betrayal is an always quietly lurking shadow among the people. The relationships are complicated, particulary the child and the man in the box, and the author makes ambiguous all the various choices of the characters.

But the good parts are so far and few between all the sex that the book didn't become interesting until page 14 The story of the man in the box is so secondary to the obsession of the pubescent children of the village. Is there really nothing else to do than to play with themselves and be concerned with who had sex with whom?

Man in the Box - Thomas Moran. So the story wallows in the hormone-addled mundane life of a young boy growing to manhood with no apparent emergence into wisdom that would have paralleled Europe’s emergence from WWII

Man in the Box - Thomas Moran. So the story wallows in the hormone-addled mundane life of a young boy growing to manhood with no apparent emergence into wisdom that would have paralleled Europe’s emergence from WWII. Speaking of the hormone-addled life, I am not offended by sexual scenes in novels, but I couldn’t help but feel that the gratuitous nature, the frequency, and the timing of Moran’s scenes were dictated less by a deep understanding of the inner life of the characters than by the author’s sense of the story’s having gone on long.

Niki Lukasser can no longer deny the impact on her sheltered teenage world of World War II when the Jewish doctor who had saved her life years before comes seeking refuge with her family in Austria. Reprint.

The strength of The Man in the Box is the clarity of the depiction of complex characters - even bit characters. The narrator's grandfather, for example, is referred to only in one short passage explaining the half-orphanhood of the narrator's best friend. Yet in the short passage a real three dimensional portrait of a hard, drinking man unmissed except, perhaps, by his wife.
No one is wholely evil or wholely saint ... in fact the motivation for hiding the Jew in the box is less than morally pure. And the Jew, isolated in his box with adolescents as his primary audience, has a wide range of responses to his current situation and to his excessive time to review his past.
This is not yet a great book but it is very good and its strength indicate that Thomas Moran is a writer well worth watching for.

I thought this would be the adventure of a Jew in hiding during WWII. Actually it focuses on the lives of a small village in Austria during that time - the family that hid him, their neighbors, the school teacher, and most of the others in the town in one way or another. It had less to do with the Jew being discovered or the war, and much more about the adolescent years of the protagonist Niki and his/her blind best friend Sigi. (I challenge you to prove which sex Niki is; everytime I thought I knew for sure I was turned around again.) The story seemed to me to be about tolerance and acceptance of oneself and others in the 1940's, with many of the conversations taking place between the Jew hidden behind a false wall in the barn, and Niki and Sigi.

There is no black or white, good or evil, just people making good and bad decisions, often for very personal and odd reasons.

Because he is on the verge (in my opinion) of greatness. If he challenges himself more as a writer and a wordsmith and deepens his thinking, he will be under serious consideration for the Nobel. He is a humanist. And his writing is great humanist writing, but his ability (again, my humble opinion) has not yet matured. *ALL* of his books so far are worth reading.

Moran's characters fully find their voice. Life is wierd, and Moran gives us a full color picture from inside their brains. Like nothing you've ever read.
