Now reissued, Michael Chabon's "New York Times" bestselling first novel is a funny, tender coming-of-age novel that introduces readers to Art Bechstein, a Holden Caulfield for the post-Boomer/pre-Gen X-er generation. Chabon's first novel was universally lauded as the arrival of a rare and remarkable new literary talent who has proved to be one of our most profound and original writers.

Well written. Loved the use of language. The story took a bit to get into and was somewhat mundane, but that is as it was meant to be - an exploration of a summer's unique but not completely unknown right of passage focused on character and place. Bravo.
