Werewolves in Their Youth: Stories by Michael Chabon

werewolves-in-youthThis book is a set of short stories, and none of them have werewolves in them.

    • I really like the way Michael Chabon writes. I was so impressed with “The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay” (also read in May 2005) that the day I finished it I went to the library and checked out “Werewolves in Their Youth”. I have more of his books on my to read list.
      Thanks for the comment, I will have to check out some of the other writers you have mentioned.
