Description
A modern classic, now in a welcome new edition,Wonder Boysfirmly established Michael Chabon as a force to be reckoned with in American fiction. At once a deft parody of the American fame factory and a piercing portrait of young and old desire, this novel introduces two unforgettable characters: Grady Tripp, a former publishing prodigy now lost in a fog of pot and passion and stalled in the midst of his endless second book, and Grady's student, James Leer, a budding writer obsessed with Hollywood self-destruction and struggling with his own searching heart. All those who love Michael Chabon'sThe Yiddish Policemen's Unionand his Pulitzer Prize-winningThe Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Claywill find the same elegant imagination, bold humor, and undeniable warmth at work inWonder Boys. "[A] wise, wildly funny story . . . Chabon is a flat-out wonderful writer-- evocative and inventive, pointed and poignant." --Chicago Tribune "Whether making us laugh or making us feel the breathtaking impermanence of things, Michael Chabon keeps us wide awake and reading." --All Things Considered "Beguiling and wickedly smart . . . There is first-rate satirical farce in Chabon's novel but essentially it is something rarer: satirical comedy." --Los Angeles Times Book Review From the Trade Paperback edition.
