Author presentation: Michael Chabon: Moonglow


Michael Chabon, who won the 2001 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction with The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay, further cements his legacy with Moonglow, a novel of truth and lies, family legends, and existential adventure—and the forces that work to connect us and destroy us.

In 1989, fresh from the breakout success of his debut novel, The Mysteries of Pittsburgh, Chabon traveled to Oakland, California, to visit his dying grandfather. Tongue loosened by powerful painkillers, memory stirred by the imminence of death, Chabon’s grandfather shared recollections and told stories that the younger man had never heard, uncovering a long-buried and nearly forgotten history. That dreamlike week of revelations is the basis of Moonglow, Chabon’s latest feat of literary magic.

In discussion with Kyle Semmel, Executive Director of Writers & Books.
