The second collection of short stories from the highly acclaimed author of The Mysteries of Pittsburgh and Wonder Boys. Werewolves In Their Youth confirms Chabon's reputation as 'the young star of American letters, "star" not in the currents sense of cheap celebrity, but in the old sense of brightly shining hope. He is a writer not only of rare skill and wit but of self-evident and immensely appealing generosity.' (Washington Post.) There are the two boys of the title story, locked in their own world of fantasy and make-believe, reaching out to each other to survive the terrible prospect of fatherlessness. House Hunting shows us the grim spectacle of a couple whose marriage is in its death throes, and whose search for a happy home is doomed; in another story a couple struggle to overcome the effects of a brutal rape. Elsewhere, a family therapist comes face to face with the dark secret of his childhood, and an American football star down on his luck makes his peace with his father. The collection culminates in a daring and wonderfully baroque horror story In the Black Mill which chronicles the terrifying fate that befalls an archaeologist as he uncovers cannibalism and ritual sacrifice.
