Moonglow: Michael Chabon

Jewish Book Week 2017 – Preview Event
Spoken Word / Tuesday, 17 January 2017 - 12:00pm / JW3
£12

From the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Wonder Boys, The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay and The Yiddish Policemen’s Union, Michael Chabon’s new book is a literary masterpiece: a novel of truth and lies, family legends, and existential adventure – and the forces that work to destroy us.

From the Jewish slums of pre-war South Philadelphia to the invasion of Germany, from a Florida retirement village to the penal utopia of New York’s Wallkill Prison, from the heyday of the space program to the twilight of ‘the American Century,’ Moonglow collapses an era into a single life and a lifetime into a single week.

A lie that tells the truth, a work of fictional non-fiction, an autobiography wrapped in a novel disguised as a memoir, Moonglow is Chabon at his most daring, his most moving, his most Chabonesque. Michael Chabon’s interviewer is Alex Clark


Michael Chabon is the bestselling and Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Mysteries of Pittsburgh, A Model World, Wonder Boys, Werewolves in their Youth, The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay, Summerland, The Final Solution, The Yiddish Policemen’s Union, Maps & Legends, Gentlemen of the Road, Telegraph Avenue, and the picture book The Astonishing Secret of Awesome Man. He lives in Berkeley, California, with his wife the novelist Ayelet Waldman, and their children. 

Alex Clark is a literary journalist and broadcaster who writes for the Guardian and the Observer. The new Director of Bath Literature Festival, she makes regular appearances on Radio 4, chairs numerous literary events, and is an experienced judge of literary awards.

This event is not included in the Kings Place multi-event ticket offer.

Please note that this event takes place at JW3 (341-351 Finchley Rd, NW3 6ET).
