Michael Chabon says his first non-fiction book will feature a variety of his non-fiction writings on the subject of being a man in terms of being a son, a father and a husband.
“Not just the Details columns, also other of my non-fiction writing on the subject, shaped, and hopefully given some kind of coherent structure,” he said via e-mail. “Edited, in other words; first by me, then by my editor Jennifer Barth.”
The book is tentatively scheduled for spring 2009.
Chabon also said he has put a young adults novel on-hold.
“Just wasn’t working for me; I’ll get back to it eventually,” he said.
As for the Bay Area-based novel announced this week, Chabon said it “is to be for adults, but I don’t want to say anything more about it right now,” including the title.
