AUTHOR

Chabon, Michael

SUMMARY

A modern classic, now in a welcome new edition, "Wonder Boys" firmly established Michael Chabon as a force to be reckoned with in American fiction. At once a deft parody of the American fame factory and a piercing portrait of young and old desire, this novel introduces two unforgettable characters: Grady Tripp, a former publishing prodigy now lost in a fog of pot and passion and stalled in the midst of his endless second book, and Grady's student, James Leer, a budding writer obsessed with Hollywood self-destruction and struggling with his own searching heart. All those who love Michael Chabon's "The Yiddish Policemen's Union" and his Pulitzer Prize-winning "The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay" will find the same elegant imagination, bold humor, and undeniable warmth at work in "Wonder Boys," "[A] wise, wildly funny story . . . Chabon is a flat-out wonderful writer- evocative and inventive, pointed and poignant." "-Chicago Tribune" "Whether making us laugh or making us feel the breathtaking impermanence of things, Michael Chabon keeps us wide awake and reading." "-All Things Considered " "Beguiling and wickedly smart . . . There is first-rate satirical farce in Chabon's novel but essentially it is something rarer: satirical comedy." "-Los Angeles Times Book Review"Chabon, Michael is the author of 'Wonder Boys', published 2008 under ISBN 9780812979213 and ISBN 0812979214.
