Michael Chabon masterfully renders the funny, tender, and captivating first-person narrative of Art Bechstein, whose confusion and heartache echo the tones of literary forebears like The Catcher in the Rye's Holden Caulfield and The Great Gatsby's Nick Carraway. The Mysteries of Pittsburgh incontrovertibly established Chabon as a powerful force in contemporary fiction, even before his Pulitzer Prize-winning novel The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay set the literary world spinning. An unforgettable story of coming of age in America, it is also an essential milestone in the movement of American fiction, from a novelist who has become one of the most important and enduring voices of this generation.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Astonishing. . . . The voice of a young writer with tremendous skill as he discovers, joyously, just what his words can do. Alice McDermott, New York Times
“Chabon’s writing is deft and delicate…He mingles dialogue, the Pittsburgh cityscape, descriptions of the characters’ acticity and Art’s thoughts and feelings.” Boston Herald
“There’s a lot of talk about this novel. It’s almost as if there’s going to be a great big literary bash. The guys who will be on the guest list are a cinch. Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn and Holden Caulfield…And now, from The Mysteries of Pittsburgh, Art Bechstein.” Washington Post Book World
