Description
A story collection from the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay , "one of his generation's most eloquent new voices" ( The New York Times ). With his first novel, The Mysteries of Pittsburgh, Michael Chabon announced his presence as a literary wunderkind of style and substance. A Model World and Other Stories only burnished his reputation as a distinctive prose stylist. In eleven elegant tales--some of them linked--by the New York Times -bestselling author of Telegraph Avenue and The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay , Chabon's singular characters hold tight to private dreams even as their closest relationships crumble. Five stories follow an anxious adolescent from the beach vacation where he learns of his parents' divorce to the confused days of a woefully misguided crush. Others find ex-lovers tormenting each other at an oceanside café, a washed-up professional baseball player attending a teammate's funeral, and a Pittsburgh disc jockey still pining for a woman who married him to get her American citizenship. "Chabon moves across powerful emotional ground with certainty and delicacy," raves the Chicago Tribune . "There are heartbreaking moments in these stories, but they are rendered so precisely, through incidents that capture the subtlest of feelings, that the reader can only smile at Chabon's skill." This ebook features a biography of the author.

A story collection from the Pulitzer Prize–winning author of The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay, "one of his generation's most eloquent new voices" (The New York Times).
With his first novel, The Mysteries of Pittsburgh, Michael Chabon announced his presence as a literary wunderkind of style and substance. A Model World and Other Stories only burnished his reputation as a distinctive prose stylist.

In eleven elegant tales—some of them linked—by the New York Times–bestselling author of Telegraph Avenue and The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay, Chabon's singular characters hold tight to private dreams even as their closest relationships crumble. Five stories follow an anxious adolescent from the beach vacation where he learns of his parents' divorce to the confused days of a woefully misguided crush. Others find ex-lovers tormenting each other at an oceanside café, a washed-up professional baseball player attending a teammate's funeral, and a Pittsburgh disc jockey still pining for a woman who married him to get her American citizenship.

"Chabon moves across powerful emotional ground with certainty and delicacy," raves the Chicago Tribune. "There are heartbreaking moments in these stories, but they are rendered so precisely, through incidents that capture the subtlest of feelings, that the reader can only smile at Chabon's skill."
