The author combines perfect pitch of tone with an acute eye for detail, whether reporting on his 13-year-old son's unlikely emergence as a fashion savant - 'where'd you get this kid?' designer John Varvatos once asked him. 'I really have no idea,' responded the author - or trying to navigate his way through reading Huckleberry Finn aloud to his children without repeating a word that makes him recoil. Even when he's driving at cruising speed, Chabon takes his readers for an enjoyable ride.
