Author Info
Michael Chabon
Chabon wrote his first short story (heavily influenced by the Sherlock Holmes stories) when he was 10. He graduated from the University of Pittsburgh, then studied at the University of California-Irvine writer's program; his first novel, THE MYSTERIES OF PITTSBURGH--his M.F.A. thesis--was published when he was 24.
Praise
"[A James] Joyce-an remix with a hipper rhythm track." (starred review)
"Mr. Chabon has constructed an amazingly rich, emotionally detailed story that addresses his perennial themes--about fathers and sons, husbands and wives, and the consolations of art--while reaching outward to explore the relationship between time past and time present, the weight (or lightness, as the case may be) of history, and the possibility of redemption and forgiveness."
"[I]t's hard to resist this charmingly earnest book."
"Much of the wit in TELEGRAPH AVENUE inheres in Chabon's astonishing prose."
"There is much here to recommend, but then, there is much here, period, including but not limited to: blackmail, infidelity, first love, kung fu, midwifery, [and] a Barack Obama cameo. . . ."
