Brand new signed first edition. This book is a remainder **ADDITIONAL SHIPPING MAY APPLY TO INTERNATIONAL ORDERS** About the book: Chabon has always been a magical prose stylist, adept at combining the sort of social and emotional detail found in Philip Roths Goodbye, Columbus stories with the metaphor-rich descriptions of John Updike and John Irvings inventive sleight of hand. . . . As in his novels, he shifts gears easily between the comic and the melancholy, the whimsical and the serious, demonstrating once again his ability to write about the big subjects of love and memory and regret without falling prey to the Scylla and Charybdis of cynicism and sentimentality.  Michiko Kakutani, New York Times Wondrous, wise and beautiful.  David Kamp, New York Times Book Review The bestselling and Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Werewolves in Their Youth, Wonderboys, The Mysteries of Pittsburgh, The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay, and The Yiddish Policemens Union Michael Chabon takes [his] brutally observant, unfailingly honest, marvelously human gaze and turns it on his own life (Time) in the New York Times bestselling memoir Manhood for Amateurs.
