Product Description:

Michael Chabon author of WONDER BOYS and the Pulitzer Prize-wining THE AMAZING ADVENTURES OF KAVALIER & CLAY has written an autobiographical narrative as inventive beautiful and powerful as his novels. In these insightful provocative slyly interlinked essays one of our most brilliant and humane writers presents his autobiography and vision of life in the way so many of us experience our own: as a series of reflections regrets and re-examinations each sparked by an encounter in the present that holds some legacy of the past. What does it mean to be a man today? Chabon invokes and interprets and struggles to reinvent for us with characteristic warmth and lyric wit the personal and family history that haunts him even as it goes on being written every day. As a son a husband and above all as a father of four young children Chabon's memories of childhood of his parents' marriage and divorce of moments of painful adolescent comedy and giddy encounters with the popular art and literature of his own youth are like a theme played - on different instruments with a fresh tempo and in a new key - by the mad quartet of which he now finds himself co-conductor.
