Chabon’s dazzling first story collection reveals lives anchored in fantasy but disrupted by surprising realities

In these eleven elegant tales, characters hold tight to private dreams even as their closest relationships crumble. Five stories follow Nathan Shapiro from the spoiled beach vacation where he learns of his parents’ divorce through his anxious adolescence and a woefully misguided crush. Other stories find ex-lovers tormenting each other at an oceanside café, a has-been baseball pro at the funeral of a more successful teammate, and a Pittsburgh disc jockey still pining for a woman who married him to get her American citizenship.Graceful, witty, and moving, the stories of A Model World helped establish Chabon as one of America’s most distinctive fiction writers and prose stylists.This ebook features a biography of the author.

About the Author

Michael Chabon (b. 1963) is an acclaimed and bestselling author whose works include the Pulitzer Prize–winning novel The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay (2000). Chabon achieved literary fame at age twenty-four with his first novel, The Mysteries of Pittsburgh (1988), which was a major critical and commercial success. He then published Wonder Boys (1995), another bestseller, which was made into a film starring Michael Douglas. One of America’s most distinctive voices, Chabon has been called “a magical prose stylist” by the New York Times Book Review, and is known for his lively writing, nostalgia for bygone modes of storytelling, and deep empathy for the human predicament.
