Chabon's sensational debut novel: the coming-of-age story of Art Bechstein, a recent graduate whose life is forever changed by one sultry summer Art Bechstein may be too young to know what he wants to do with his life, but he knows what he doesn't want: the life of his father, a man who laundered money for the mob. Bechstein spends the summer after his graduation from a Pittsburgh university searching for his future and finding his own sort of trouble with brilliant and seductive new friends-erudite, unscrupulous Arthur Lecomte, mercurial Phlox, and Cleveland, a poetry-reciting biker. Insightful and energetic, The Mysteries of Pittsburgh beautifully renders the hard edges of a blue-collar city and the charm of its local characters. This ebook features a biography of the author.

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.
