Read in April, 2010

Any collection of essays is subject to hit-and-miss. Chabon waxes on fatherhood, mostly, drawing parallels between his own childhood and that of his children. When he's not a grumpy old guy complaining about the loss of "all things great" from our generation's childhood, he's often (poignantly) spot-on.

Philip I think you will really enjoy this. I liked the movie "wonder boys" and didn't realize he was the author until I read the book. Funny and thoughtful.

Mark Somehow, I only saw this comment just now, Phil. If you've missed Chabon and like his style, you've missed a lot of wonderful writing. Check out The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay, one of my favorites.

Philip so what is the deal, with dogs, homosexual friends, and marijuana; oh yeah OCD runs in the family. LOL

Philip I will ask for cChristmas... (small c intended)
