Yes, there’s a new Michael Chabon nov­el com­ing out Novem­ber 2016. And yes, it’s good.

You’d bet­ter be pre­pared to pry this one out of your loved ones’ grasp and gaze to get them to the table this Thanks­giv­ing: Moon­glow is an utter­ly absorb­ing tale of mad­ness and mod­el rock­etry, of war and adven­ture, of love and desire, of the shin­ing aspi­ra­tions and demon­ic under­pin­nings of Amer­i­can tech­no­log­i­cal accom­plish­ments at mid-cen­tu­ry and, above all, of the destruc­tive impact — and the cre­ative pow­er — of the keep­ing of secrets and the telling of lies.” From the Jew­ish neigh­bor­hoods of Philadel­phia, Bal­ti­more, and Florid­i­an retire­ment com­mu­ni­ties to penal colonies at home and war camps abroad, Chabon’s newest jour­ney proves well worth the wait.
