Creator: Michael Chabon

Lately I've been on a jag of Michael Chabon reading. To me, he's as good as any novelist working today, plus his essays are consistently engaging. I just finished reading McSweeney's Mammoth Treasury of Thrilling Tales, which Chabon edited and to which he contributed both the introduction and the final story.

He posted a copy of his introduction on his Web site. This piece alone is well worth reading by anyone who cares about the current state of American fiction. (His site is filled with other tasty morsels as well.)

I also heartily recommend The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay and The Final Solution.
