Presented by Next Door at NYTWSYNOPSIS:
After he became the second man to walk on the moon, reporters asked Buzz Aldrin if he wished he had been the first. “I really didn’t want that,” Buzz claimed, “because of the added heartache.” Why is it so hard to believe him? A folk-rock fable for the runner-up in all of us, 1969: The Second Man
explores competition and collective achievement through the story of one small man who became one giant myth.
