Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay by Michael Chabon – Dedication

In Adventure, Award-Winners, Books on July 20, 2010 at 11:57 am

Michael Chabon dedicated his Pulitzer Prizewinner The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay:

To my father.

Chabon’s mother raised him as a single parent. Years after he published Kavalier and Clay, Chabon said this about his dad:

‘My own father had always been an elusive figure in my life. My father-in-law, on the other hand, offered himself completely, without reservation.’

NPR has the complete story (with very harsh comments from readers, haha).
