The author would like to thank

Mary Evans and Douglas Stumpf,

Tigris and Euphrates of this little empire.

I wonder why he refers to himself in third person?

Mary Evans is Chabon’s literary agent. Her clients include Nicholas von Hoffman and Christopher Castellani.

Douglas Stumpf is an editor at Vanity Fair and other Harper Collins Publications ~ he wrote Confessions of a Wall Street Shoeshine Boy. Chabon calls him “the heroic Douglas Stumpf” in The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay.

Breaking Dawn by Stephanie Meyer is dedicated to her agent and the band Muse.

This book is dedicated to my ninja/agent, Jodi Reamer. Thank you for keeping me off the ledge.
