The Lowell Humanities Series Presents Michael Chabon      Michael Chabon is a novelist, screenwriter, columnist, and short story writer, best known for his novel The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay, which won the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction in 2001. Chabon, who earned an undergraduate degree in English from the University of Pittsburgh an MFA in Creative Writing from the University of California at Irvine, began writing and publishing short stories between 1987 and 1990, mostly in The New Yorker but also in GQ and Mademoiselle. His debut novel, The Mysteries of Pittsburgh, made him an instant literary sensation, and his second novel, Wonder Boys, was made into a critically acclaimed movie of the same name. His distinguished body of work also includes Werewolves in Their Youth, The Yiddish Policemenís Union, Gentlemen of the Road, Summerland, Manhood for Amateurs, and Telegraph Avenue. Michael Chabon comes to us thanks to the generous support of the Marianacci family.
