Lots of jokes before page 1, huh Mr. Chabon?
This isn't quite as metafictional as it sounds going in, but it is a phony memoir in the vein of Roth's Operation Shylock. The key difference is, instead of Chabon going on some kind of crazy adventure, he's relaying #thestory of his grandparents, as told to him by his dying grandfather. Like the other Chabon's I've read, I didn't gobble this up, just savored every word. Thanks for the rec @Cinfhen !
I've had this book on my to read list for a while. I love when authors are able to write a book on their life story (or a family member) - even when it seems like you are reading a fiction book. There are so many life stories from the past that make for an intriguing read. Hopefully I can read this story soon.

This was one of the most unexpected stories I had had heard about recent times. That there could be a hermit living in the woods in this technological age was fascinating.
