Wonder Boys is my first experience with Michael Chabon. Now I wonder why it took me so long to discover this writer. Chabon writes in a style that keeps the narrative flowing with unexpected plot turns.
Wonder Boys is my first experience with Michael Chabon. I read this book because 1) it was free and 2) it was set in Pittsburgh; I regret it. The author/protagonist is a middle-aged adolescent alternatively disloyal and puppy-like, surrounded for the most part by equally dislikeable characters. I supposed I finished it because I have liked other books Michael Chabon has written. At every page turn I was hoping Grady Tripp would begin to act his age and make a sensible decision. The Wonder Boys, however, are all about their personal lives. For them the midnight disease is whining about how they can't write, carousing and causing mayhem instead, acting before thinking about how they are affecting others, including killing a poor old dog and carrying around his body in the trunk of a borrowed car letting him decompose.

Wonder Boys is a 1995 novel by the American writer Michael Chabon. It was adapted into a film with the same title in 2000. Pittsburgh professor and author Grady Tripp is working on an unwieldy 2,611-page manuscript that is meant to be the follow-up to his successful, award-winning novel The Land Downstairs, which was published seven years earlier
Two months earlier my publisher, Bartizan, had been bought out by Blicero Verlag, a big German media conglomerate, and subsequent rumors of a ruthless housecleaning by the new owners had managed to penetrate as far into the outback as Pittsburgh. I guess I don’t fit the new corporate profile.

Welcome to WONDER BOYS, Michael Chabon's novel about a washed-up writer slash professor with a weed habit, a book he cannot finish, a bevy of babes (some young enough to be his daughter) to choose from, and a penchant for disaster. The title comes from the behemoth of a novel Grady Tripp cannot finish, but you needn't Wonder why when you see the lifestyle he lives.
