A story collection from the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay, "one of his generation's most eloquent new voices" (The New York Times). With his first novel, The Mysteries of Pittsburgh, Michael Chabon announced his presence as a literary wunderkind of style and substance. A Model World and Other Stories only burnished his reputation as a distinctive prose stylist.   In eleven elegant tales--some of them linked--by the New York Times-bestselling author of Telegraph Avenue and The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay, Chabon's singular characters hold tight to private dreams even as their closest relationships crumble. Five stories follow an anxious adolescent from the beach vacation where he learns of his parents' divorce to the confused days of a woefully misguided crush. Others find ex-lovers tormenting each other at an oceanside café, a washed-up professional baseball player attending a teammate's funeral, and a Pittsburgh disc jockey still pining for a woman who married him to get her American citizenship.   "Chabon moves across powerful emotional ground with certainty and delicacy," raves the Chicago Tribune. "There are heartbreaking moments in these stories, but they are rendered so precisely, through incidents that capture the subtlest of feelings, that the reader can only smile at Chabon's skill."   This ebook features a biography of the author.… (mer)

Pleasant collection extremely anchored in a particular time, place, class, social circle. Write what you know! Chabon as ever has the deftly-observed character and the piercing turn of phrase. ( )

Nathan has gone to Chaya's place naked in the middle of the night, sort of a dare by his equally juvenile mates.
"Are you a virgin, Nathan?" she said, her mouth very close to his.

He considered his reply much longer than he needed to, trying to phrase it as ambiguously as he could. "In a manner of speaking," he said at last, blushing in self-congratulation at the urbanity of this reply.

An enticing and great collection of contemporary short stories. Nearly ever single one of them has something to offer. Highly recommended. ( )
  DanielSTJ | May 5, 2019 |
Great stories, collection with two different parts. The first part present indepent stories, told with a lot of humor and wit. The second part is a series around the boy Nathan, living through puberty and the divorce of his parents and has a more melancholical tone, without becoming melodramatic. Both parts worthwhile reading. ( )

Early Chabon is still good Chabon. Standalone stories in the first section (Model World) track the connections.... missed and made... by young adults. Linked stories in the second section (Lost World) shows the dissolution of the Shapiro family by divorce and its effects on everyone, especially young Nathan (stand-in for Michael?). Delicate & visceral feelings, dynamically and divinely written. ( )

"With this volume of stories -- and in particular, the stories about Nathan Shapiro -- Mr. Chabon goes beyond the promise of his last book. Indeed, he establishes himself as one of his generation's most eloquent new voices"
