I'm a sucker for metafiction like this novel where how to tell a story IS #thestory.

Ruthiella Oh this book made me crazy! But I am willing to give Calvino another shot...Maybe Invisible Cities. 3y
Bookish.SAM Love this! Tried to bring it to book club, but that didn‘t go over well 🤷🏻‍♀️ 3y
merelybookish @vivastory I loved it when I read it but don't remember much now. Need to re-read it! 3y
merelybookish @Ruthiella I read another by him and didn't love it. 🤷 I think his books vary a lot! 3y

This is #thestory of Nancy Rudolph, the “jezebel of W Va,” who was accused of assisting her brother in law with infanticide.

I don‘t remember reading this one besides the fact that I loved it. #lilithjuly

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 !

KarenUK I love the sound of this.... thanks for sharing. Stacked! 📚 3y
Cinfhen I kind of got lost in the world of his grandfather ~ this was a strange one but I really liked it. I‘m glad it was a pick for you. 3y

Billypar @Cinfhen There's definitely many strange and memorable moments to get lost in. I also feel like he really nailed the voice of a certain kind of surly male personality of that generation- some parts reminded me of my own grandfather. 3y
Cinfhen Same!! His grandpa reminded me a bit of Leo G. from 3y
Suet624 This book sits on my shelf winking at me. It's coming close to the time that I read it. 3y
Billypar @Suet624 That's an apt metaphor for this one- it winks at you while you read it too! 😉 3y

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.

emz711 Tbr! Thanks 3y
KarenUK Great pick 👍😊🌲🌲🌲 3y
Cinfhen Sorry I missed this post!! It was such a fascinating read!!! 3y
