Michael Chabon

(Literary Fiction, Short Stories, Essays)

 

 

 

“Man makes plans … and God laughs.”

“When I finish a first draft, it’s always just as much of a mess as it’s always been. I still make the same mistakes every time.”

“You need three things to become a successful novelist: talent, luck and discipline. Discipline is the one element of those three things that you can control, and so that is the one that you have to focus on controlling, and you just have to hope and trust in the other two.”

Michael Chabon (born 1963), American author, became a literary celebrity with his first novel, The Mysteries Of Pittsburgh at the age of twenty-five.  He wrote the bestselling and Pulitzer Prize-winning  Moonglow, The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay, and Wonder Boys (1995; film 2000). And two collections of short stories, and one other work of non-fiction.

“Mr. Chabon is that rare thing, an intelligent lyrical writer.”The New York Times Book Review.

Wonder Boys caught me up and carried me along like some kind of flying carpet. . . . Michael Chabon keeps us wide awake and reading.”—Alan Cheuse, All Things Considered, NPR

    I’ve read some of Michael Chabon’s work and it’s really good. He has that natural flow of storytelling and although not all of his stories are speculative they all seem to have the energy and ambition of science fiction and fantasy.
