Hey guys.
Trying to remember the title and author of a book. Perhaps, you could help me?
The main character is a young Maori man. (Arthur?) He lives in some place for homeless people. Thinks of himself as a Messiah. Meets some woman (don't remember - either bad marriage, or something happened in her life and she's depressed), convinces her too that he is a Messiah, organises a special time and place for a special conceiving...
I remember a little bit from the book about Arthur giving a banknote to some poor fellow/beggar he knows. But - not the whole note but just a half of it, saying it would be something special. The second half he gives to that woman, and she, in turn, meets that fella and gives him her own half.
If I'm not mistaken, in the title there is a word "moon".
I read the book about 10 years ago (in a local Melbourne library, but alas - can't find it now).
