Set in the darkest days of the Great Depression, Paper Moon is the story of what happens when Addie's mother is killed in a car crash, leaving her daughter in the questionable hands of Long Boy, a con-man who may or may not be her biological father. Together they set out on a rollicking journey through the Deep South, hustling every sucker in sight and proving time and time again that no matter how much money you make, it's no fun unless you're making it with somebody you love.

Brimming with humor, pathos, and an irresistible narrative energy, Paper Moon is American storytelling at its finest - tough, vibrant, and ripe for rediscovery.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Donna | 2/5/2014

    " A fun read. The last 'event' was very contrived and came together a bit too neatly, but otherwise, the con games were 'slick.' And I mean that in a good way. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Winona | 2/4/2014

    " "Addie Pray" by Joe David Brown is one of my favorite books, later made into the movie "Paper Moon", with Tatum O'Neal and Ryan O'Neal. I saw the movie first, and it is good, but the book is so much better, with a lot more adventures! A great story about a father/daughter con artist team. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dana Stabenow | 1/31/2014

    " Best caper novel ever. Love Addie, love Long Boy, love the Colonel, and I especially love "the girls." "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marcela | 1/30/2014

    " Muy divertida (: "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Colin | 1/22/2014

    " Enjoyable, felt it kind of petered out at the end. Not really sure where it could have gone, but it was pretty anticlimactic. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lori | 1/22/2014

    " This was an enjoyable read. I liked how the author shows the storyline from the perspective of the young girl. The review says it is as good as To Kill A Mockingbird. I've read that book over a dozen times. This book definitely is not as good as TKAM, but it's good nonetheless. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeanette | 1/19/2014

    " This movie came out when I was a kid. I loved the movie, so I had to read the book. Now that I look at it as an adult, I'm not very impressed, but I recall really liking it back then. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Valerie Petersen | 1/19/2014

    " An engaging book about 11-year old orphan, Addie, who travels the South with her perhaps daddy, scheming and conning just about everyone. What a team of "gentle sharpsters." It's very humorous...made me laugh out loud in places. A classic! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ellen | 1/14/2014

    " I adore this book. I love the hijinks, the characters and the story line. I hope my book club is as pleased to read it as I was. I read this book as a child and LOVED it so I was unsure if it would stand the test of time for me, but it did. And I could still identify with the main character. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Robin | 1/9/2014

    " If you loved the type of humor in the movie, you'll love this book. Hilarious! Some bad language at times, but the writing and story is so good. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lisa | 1/4/2014

    " It's like Paper Moon, Dixie North, and the Gitaway Box all rolled into one book. It also has the added bonus of mentioning almost every small town in Alabama, including Jasper. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michelle | 1/3/2014

    " WATCH THIS MOVIE!!!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Linda | 12/16/2013

    " I enjoyed this a lot. A con man taking his (probable) daughter with him to bilk people. Rather incredulous, but as seen from her viewpoint, fun. I especially liked the character Mayflower. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Katie | 12/6/2013

    " I love this story! It is delightful, to use an old expression on an old fashioned story. It is beautiful in it's simplicity "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Shelley | 7/30/2013

    " I had a hard time getting into this one, but I'm not sure why. I think I was anticipating it too much with it being compared to To Kill a Mockingbird. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenny Nichol | 6/25/2013

    " A very good book! Very different yet comical story of life during the depression. I would have liked more of a ending.... But did really enjoy it! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Missmaryfran | 6/10/2013

    " This was a great read! I loved this book. Don't know why I never saw the movie. Just rented it. Wasn't disappointed. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sunny | 6/8/2013

    " If you want to read a book that is similar to To Kill a Mockingbird. This book reminded me of that authors style. I loved it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Margali | 5/26/2013

    " This was one case where I liked the movie A LOT better than the book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Simon Cooper | 5/16/2013

    " A great slice of depression-era Americana. The first part is quixotic and charming, it is in the worm-turning, heart-warming second section that the story takes wings "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kandice | 4/15/2013

    " This was such a fun story to read. They were h horrid scamps, but so charming you had to root for them! I've read it many times. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ellen Whyte | 11/30/2012

    " I read this 20 years ago and still remember it. Excellent story and well worth reading. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeremy | 7/28/2012

    " This was an enjoyable read (listen) about a couple of post-depression grifters making their way around the southeast "doing business." The stories of their exploits are very entertaining, but the story lacks sufficient resolution to be one of my favorites. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Frances Levy | 7/17/2012

    " What a wonderful yarn! I never tire of rereading this one. And the movie version, "Paper Moon" (for which little Tatum O'Neal won an Oscar) is just as good as the book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chandra | 6/19/2012

    " Just started last night after I put down "The Boleyn Inheritance". "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nicole Shepard | 6/9/2012

    " It was really good until it wasn't. The story line never changed or progressed. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vicki | 5/1/2012

    " I enjoyed it! I liked the characters and the book kept me wondering how they would pull off their next business. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amelia | 4/23/2012

    " Very enjoyable read -- really a 3.5. It's one of those rare books though where the movie, which covered the first half of the book, is better. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mark Wargo | 4/4/2012

    " One of my favorite childhood books. "
