About this title


At Stanford Chuck Kinder became close friends with fellow students Raymond Carver, Larry McMurtry, and Scott Turow. His relationship with Carver inspired his novel Honeymooners: A Cautionary Tale, which for nearly twenty years had vexed Kinder and had grown, uncontrollably, into a sprawling manuscript of over 3,000 pages at one point. Kinder's struggle with this manuscript was local legend at the University of Pittsburgh. Michael Chabon, once an undergraduate student of Kinder's, used it as inspiration for the character Grady Tripp in the 1995 novel Wonder Boys. This new edition of Honeymooners contains the "lost chapters."
