Michael Chabon, the Pulitzer Prize-winning author whose works include The Mysteries of Pittsburgh, Wonder Boys, The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay, and The Yiddish Policemen’s Union, reads from and discusses his new book Manhood for Amateurs: The Pleasures and Regrets of a Husband, Father, and Son. Chabon’s first major work of nonfiction, Manhood for Amateurs is a memoir as inventive, beautiful, and powerful as his acclaimed, award-winning fiction. In these insightful, provocative, slyly interlinked essays, Chabon presents his autobiography and his vision of life and explores what it means to be a man today.
