1 post
Since the publication of his first novel, The Mysteries of Pittsburgh, launched him to fame, Michael Chabon (b. 1963) has become one of contemporary literatures most acclaimed novelists by pursuing his singular vision across all boundaries of genre and medium. A firm believer that reading even the most challenging literature should be a fundamentally pleasurable experience, Chabon has produced an astonishingly diverse body of work that includes detective novels, weird tales of horror, alternate history science fiction, and rollicking chronicles of swashbuckling adventure alongside tender coming-ofage stories, sprawling social novels, and narratives of intense introspection. Uniting them all is Chabons utterly distinct prose styleexuberant and graceful, sometimes ironic but never cynical. His work has earned accolades ranging from the Pulitzer Prize to science fictions Hugo and Nebula Awards. Conversations with Michael Chabon collects eighteen revealing interviews with the renowned author of The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay, The Yiddish Policemens Union, and other much-admired works. Spanning nearly twenty years and drawn from science fiction fan magazines and literary journals alike, these interviews shed new light on the central concerns of Chabons fiction, including the importance of dismantling the false divide between literary and lowbrow, his evolving relationship to Jewish culture and literature, the unique properties of male friendship, and the complexities of race in contemporary America. These interviews are essential reading for anyone seeking a better understanding of the life and work of an author who has been instrumental in defining the landscape of contemporary American fiction.

Just finished watching and in the final credits, who do I see but “Executive Producer Michael Chabon” (among others)! I now have mad respect for not only his writing but his part in this amazing production. If you can handle the subject matter, then I can‘t recommend this series enough. #triggerwarning #netflix

cathysaid @Kalalalatja Stacking! 2mo
cathysaid @MicheleinPhilly I had to look away several times in the first episode. The following episodes are less visually graphic as the focus is on the investigation. Definitely don‘t try to watch if it‘s a trigger. Maybe read the book @Kalalalatja mentions above? 2mo
