Description
 

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 Gradys student, James Leer, a budding writer obsessed with Hollywood self-destruction and struggling with his own searching heart. All those who love Michael Chabons The Yiddish Policemens 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 Chabons novel but essentially it is something rarer: satirical comedy. -Los Angeles Times Book Review
