Manhood for Amateurs, by Michael Chabon

Scroll down to content

I’ve tried reading Chabon’s novels, but never been able to get past the first 100 pages or so — hopefully next time. 🙂 But he’s a great writer, in any event; he’s got a great deftness with words. So I was happy when Mom sent me this collection of his essays. They’re not uniformly great, but some of them are awesome, capturing a lot about what it’s like to grow up, to raise a family, to live a life.

I’d quote some of the more interesting essays, but don’t have the book to hand (shocking! an actual paper book). But fun to read, especially if you like Chabon or are a parent.
