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.
