Product Overview

?Chabon has always been a magical prose stylist, adept at combining the sort of social and emotional detail found in Philip Roth?sGoodbye, Columbus stories with the metaphor-rich descriptions of John Updike and John Irving?s inventive sleight of hand. . . . As in his novels, he shifts gears easily between the comic and the melancholy, the whimsical and the serious, demonstrating once again his ability to write about the big subjects of love and memory and regret without falling prey to the Scylla and Charybdis of cynicism and sentimentality.?
? Michiko Kakutani, New York Times

?Wondrous, wise and beautiful.?
? David Kamp, New York Times Book Review

The bestselling and Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Werewolves in Their Youth, Wonderboys, The Mysteries of Pittsburgh, The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay, andThe Yiddish Policemen?s Union Michael Chabon ?takes [his] brutally observant, unfailingly honest, marvelously human gaze and turns it on his own life? (Time) in theNew York Times bestselling memoir Manhood for Amateurs.
