"This was my absolute favorite book of 2016! I had told that to a stranger at a bus stop one day, and he had asked me why I liked the book so much. I said that I guessed it was largely because that I almost feel as though it was my own grandfather telling me the story, which in fact was impossible, given that I had never met my own grandfather. And that's just the craziness of it all isn't it, when a book that is a work of fiction (or partly fiction in this case) can cause you to invoke an emotion or embody a spirit that otherwise had never existed. Am I making any sense? Anyway, this book made me rediscover the magic of storytelling. Chabon has really written something wonderful and masterful in this 'autobiography wrapped in a novel, disguised as a memoir.' Please please read this book!" - Anthony
