I am currently reading my third book by Michael Chabon (pronounced 'SHAY-bon' in case you were wondering). I am reading "Wonder Boys." Mmmmm...that's good use of language. I am considering using the book in my first book talk this spring. In order to do a proper booktalk I think you have to read as much as you can by and about an author. I found an awesome essay he did comparing writing a novel to creating a golem. You can read it here.
