Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

The best-selling author of The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay and a Pulitzer Prize winner questions what it means to be a man today in a series of interlinked autobiographical series of reflections, regrets, and reexaminations, each sparked by an encounter, in the present, that holds some legacy of the past. 200,000 first printing.


Review:

"[Chabon's] clearly having so much fun being a dad--and thinking about what it means to be a dad--that it's a wonder he has time to create such excellent novels. Wry and heartfelt, [his] riffs uncover brand-new insights in even the most quotidian subjects." (starred review)

Kirkus Reviews, 06/15/2009

Review:

"Chabon is more or less incapable of writing a boring sentence. Like Updike, he is an inveterate noticer, and the central appeal of his style lies in its lyric precision....[He] proves excellent company, an insightful chatterbox, curious, erudite, occasionally profane and ultimately wise to the delusions of masculinity."

Steve Almond, Los Angeles Times, 10/04/2009

Book Description: HarperCollins Publishers Inc, United States, 2009. Hardback. Book Condition: New. 211 x 142 mm. Brand New Book. The Pulitzer Prize-winning author-- an immensely gifted writer and a magical prose stylist (Michiko Kakutani, New York Times)--offers his first major work of nonfiction, an autobiographical narrative as inventive, beautiful, and powerful as his acclaimed, award-winning fiction.A shy manifesto, an impractical handbook, the true story of a fabulist, an entire life in parts and pieces, Manhood for Amateurs is the first sustained work of personal writing from Michael Chabon. In these insightful, provocative, slyly interlinked essays, one of our most brilliant and humane writers presents his autobiography and his vision of life in the way so many of us experience our own lives: as a series of reflections, regrets, and reexaminations, each sparked by an encounter, in the present, that holds some legacy of the past. What does it mean to be a man today? Chabon invokes and interprets and struggles to reinvent for us, with characteristic warmth and lyric wit, the personal and family history that haunts him even as--simply because--it goes on being written every day. As a devoted son, as a passionate husband, and above all as the father of four young Americans, Chabon presents his memories of childhood, of his parents marriage and divorce, of moments of painful adolescent comedy and giddy encounters with the popular art and literature of his own youth, as a theme played--on different instruments, with a fresh tempo and in a new key--by the mad quartet of which he now finds himself co-conductor. At once dazzling, hilarious, and moving, Manhood for Amateurs is destined to become a classic. Bookseller Inventory # AAC9780061490187
