An “immensely gifted writer and magical prose stylist” (Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times), Michael Chabon is celebrated for his remarkable ability to transport his readers.  His many novels include The Mysteries of Pittsburgh, The Yiddish Policemen’s Union, Wonder Boys, The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay, and Telegraph Avenue. His most recent, Moonglow, is based on stories he was told by his ailing grandfather during a visit in 1989. It is part novel, part memoir, in which he has “stuck to facts except when facts refused to conform with memory, narrating purpose, or the truth as I prefer to understand it. Wherever liberties have been taken … the reader is assured that they have been taken with due abandon.”  The book follows his grandparents as their lives weave through much of the 20th century.
