In MOONGLOW, Pulitzer Prize winner Michael Chabon turns his own family history into fiction as he imagines the murky origins and murkier fate of Chabon Scientific Company, a mail-order novelty business. This expansive narrative unfolds as an old man’s deathbed confession to his grandson; over the course of his final week, the man leaves a dizzying legacy of half-revealed secrets and shocking revelations as he looks back over a tumultuous century and relives scenes from an impoverished childhood in south Philadelphia, wartime Europe, a prison in upstate New York, and the American space program.
About this author:
Michael Chabon is the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay — an epic novel that charts 16 years in the lives of Sammy Clay and Joe Kavalier, two Jewish cousins who create a popular series of comic books in the early 1940s, the years leading up to the U.S. entry into World War II. In addition to novels, including the now-classic Wonder Boys, Chabon has also produced short stories, screenplays, children’s books, comics, and newspaper serials.
