Críticas:

"Both lyrical and side-splittingly funny. . . . Readers seeking the intelligence of Updike; the gentle, brainy appeal of Sedaris; or the literary virtuosity of Nabokov will thoroughly enjoy."--Douglas C. Lord, Library Journal

"Chabon brings his prodigiously entertaining verbal intelligence to a very personal investigation of what it means to be a father, a son, and a husband."--Lev Grossman, Time (Top 10 Nonfiction Books Citation)

"Hilarious, moving, pleasurable, disturbing, transcendent, restless. . . . And seemingly by accident, Chabon ultimately does create a composite image of ideal manhood, one that is modest, responsible, bemused, empathic, and thoughtful."--Jeremy Adam Smith, San Francisco Chronicle

"Chabon takes a big, fat swing at the essay form with his second collection and achieves success. . . . These warm and thoughtful essays underscore just how good a wordsmith Chabon is-regardless of the form he chooses."--Jerry Eberle, Booklist

Descripción HarperCollins Publishers Inc, United States, 2011. Paperback. Condición: New. Reprint. Language: English . Brand New Book. Chabon has always been a magical prose stylist, adept at combining the sort of social and emotional detail found in Philip Roth s Goodbye, Columbus stories with the metaphor-rich descriptions of John Updike and John Irving s 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 Policemen s 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.
