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.
