Chabon Makes New Book Recommendations

The Wall Street Journal’s Speakeasy blog this week has been featuring reading recommendations by various authors. Among those the WSJ contacted was Michael Chabon, who recommended two books published by author Bryan Charles in 2010, There’s a Road to Everywhere Except Where You Came From and Pavement’s Wowee Zowee.

“Though one is an account of aspiration and scuffling in Manhattan in the year leading up to the 9/11 attacks (Charles filled a cubicle in the WTC and his account of the day is startling and fresh), and the other is a (quirky, personal) consideration and history of a great band’s neglected masterpiece, the two books actually interlock and engage with each other in a number of interesting ways,” Chabon said.

For recommendations by other authors, including Dave Eggers and Jennifer Egan, head here and here.
