A brilliant, idiosyncratic collection of introductions and afterwords (plus some liner notes) by New York Times bestselling and Pulitzer Prize winning author Michael Chabon-one of contemporary literature's most gifted prose stylists (Michiko Kakutani, New York Times).
In Bookends, Pulitzer Prize winning author Michael Chabon offers a compilation of pieces about literature-age-old classics as well as his own-that presents a unique look into his literary origins and influences, the books that shaped his taste and formed his ideas about writing and reading.
Chabon asks why anyone would write an introduction, or for that matter, read one. His own daughter Rose prefers to skip them. Chabon's answer is simple and simultaneously profound: a hope of bringing pleasure for the reader. Likewise, afterwords-they are all about shared pleasure, about the pure love of a work of art that has inspired, awakened, transformed the reader. Ultimately, this thought-provoking compendium is a series of love letters and thank-you notes, unified by the simple theme of the shared pleasure of discovery, whether it's the boyhood revelation of the most important story in Chabon's life (Ray Bradbury's The Rocket Man); a celebration of the greatest literary cartographer of the planet Mars (Edgar Rice Burroughs, with his character John Carter); a reintroduction to a forgotten master of ghost stories (M. R. James, ironically the happiest of men); the recognition that the worlds of Wes Anderson's films are reassembled scale models of our own broken reality (as is all art); Chabon's own rude awakening from the muse as he writes his debut novel, The Mysteries of Pittsburgh; or a playful parody of lyrical interpretation in the liner notes for Mark Ronson's Uptown Special, the true purpose of which, Chabon insists, is to spread the gospel of sensible automotive safety and maintenance practices.
Galaxies away from academic or didactic, Bookends celebrates wonder-and like the copy of The Phantom Tollbooth handed to young Michael by a friend of his father he never saw again-it is a treasured gift.
Описание: The Pulitzer Prize winning author -- “an immensely gifted writer and a magical prose stylist” (Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times) -- offers his first major work of nonfiction, an autobiographical narrative as inventive, beautiful, and powerful as critics and readers have come to expect.

Описание: Now in paperback, the runaway national bestseller, “an excellent, hyperliterate, genre-pantsing detective novel that deserves every inch of its…blockbuster superfame” (New York).
Описание: Golden-Age superhero, the Escapist--master of elusion, champion of liberation--was conceived in the fictional world of the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay. This comic book anthology contains a variety of the Escapist's exploits, and details on the history of the character. Master of elusion and foe of tyranny, from his secret headquarters beneath the majestic Empire Theater, the Escapist and his associates have been defeating the crooked and coming to the aid of those in need for generations. From obstructing the endeavors of post-war Nazis, to protecting the innocent from an attack on the World's Fair, to infiltrating behind enemy lines to free prisoners of war in Vietnam, and even to stymieing a hypnotizing saxophone player, the Escapist does not suffer oppression of any kind. A multitude of the Escapist's pulse-pounding adventures are collected here along with details of the publishing history of Joe Kavalier and Sam Clay's creation. This volume also contains a story torn straight from the pages of The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay written by Michael Chabon, the tale of the mysterious Mr. Machine Gun. Also featured, from another Kavalier & Clay classic publication, Weird Date, are two stories of romance, crime, and mystery. This collection features comic book creators of legend, including Will Eisner (The Spirit), Eduardo Barreto (Batman), Jeffrey Brown (Star Wars: Darth Vader and Son), Howard Chaykin (American Flagg, Star Wars), Paul Gulacy (Master of Kung Fu), Jeff Parker (Bucko), Marv Wolfman (The Tomb of Dracula), Thomas Yeates (Prince Valiant), and so many more Containing a total of twenty-two tales, along with three never-before-collected stories, this volume also contains five never-before-published stories, as well as a robust gallery of pinups celebrating the world of the Escapist from artists including Gabriel B (The Umbrella Academy, Casanova) Brian Bolland (Judge Dredd), Bill Morrison (The Simpsons), F bio Moon (Serenity, Casanova), Tim Sale (Batman, Superman), and many more

Описание: Chabon`s first non-fiction work is a love song in sixteen essays in praise of reading and writing, in which he argues for a return to the thrilling, chilling origins of storytelling, rejecting the false walls round `serious` literature. His own fiction is explored from the perspective of personal history: post-collegiate desperation sparks `The Mysteries of Pittsburgh`; procrastination and doubt lead the way to `Wonder Boys`; a basement golem and a love of comics combine to create his Kavalier and Clay titles; and an enigmatic phrasebook unfurls into `The Yiddish Policemen`s Union`. Publishing simultaneously with Chabon`s memoir, `Manhood for Amateurs`.

Описание: From Michael Chabon, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of `The Adventures of Kavalier and Clay` and `The Yiddish Policeman`s Union`, an autobiographical narrative as inventive, beautiful and powerful as his novels. Chabon`s memories of childhood, of his parents` marriage and divorce, of moments of painful adolescent comedy and giddy encounters with the popular literature and art of his own youth, are like a theme played on different instruments, with a fresh tempo and in a new key - by the mad quartet of which he now finds himself co-conductor. Destined to become a classic, this is published simultaneously with Chabon`s collection of essays, `Maps and Legends`.
