Wonder Boys

(1995)
A novel by

 
 
To tie-in with the hit film starring Michael Douglas, Toby Maguire, Frances McDormand and Robert Downey Jr. From the director of L A Confidential. Michael Chabon's new novel The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay will be published on 5 October 2000. Grady Tripp is an over-sexed, pot-bellied, pit-smoking, aging wunderkind of a novelist now teaching creative writing at a Pittsburgh college while working on his 2000 page masterpiece, Wonder Boys. When his rumbustious editor and friend Terry Crabtree arrives in town, a chaotic weekend follows, involving a tuba, a dead dog, Marilyn Monroe's ermine-lined jacket and a squashed boa constrictor.' Q 'Wonder Boys is a superb creation, a raucously comic yet deeply lyrical work. Chabon has evolved into a seriously funny writer, a master of the comic set-up.' Sunday Times 'A deliriously funny novel... Chabon's elegant style, perfectly realised characters and comic vision combine to make the most enjoyable novel of the year.' Esquire 'A wonderfully teasing comic novel... Chabon juggles all these preoccupations with a quirky deftness he employs in his first novel.' Independent
