Don't let the title fool you—this book is an excellent read for males and females alike. In his typical smooth-flowing, lyrical, and witty style, Chabon gives us his first collected book of nonfiction. In short essays, he muses on everything from circumcision to his first kiss, and from The Future to talking to his kids about drugs. A wonderful collection from a wonderful author.

John Lahr: By the Book - The author of “Tennessee Williams: Mad Pilgrimage of the Flesh” is not a fan of science fiction. “Life on earth is mysterious and terrifying enough.”
