Review:

‘The natural exuberance and extravagance of Chabon’s writing is matched by dazzling wit.’ Sunday Telegraph

‘A deliriously funny novel...Chabon’s elegant style, perfectly realised characters and comic vision combine to make the most enjoyable novel of the year.’ Esquire

‘A wonderfully teasing comic novel...Chabon juggles all these preoccupations with a quirky deftness he employs in his first novel.’ Independent

‘“Wonder Boys” is a superb creation, a raucously comic yet deeply lyrical work. Chabon has evolved into a seriously funny writer, a master of the comic set-up.’ Sunday Times
