´´Magical prose stylist´´ Michael Chabon (Michiko Kakutani, New York Times) delivers a collection of essays - heartfelt, humorous, insightful, wise - on the meaning of fatherhood. For the September 2016 issue of GQ, Michael Chabon wrote a piece about accompanying his son Abraham Chabon, then 13, to Paris Men´s Fashion Week. Possessed with a precocious sense of style, Abe was in his element chatting with designers he idolized and turning a critical eye to the freshest runway looks of the season; Chabon Sr., whose interest in clothing stops at ´´thrift-shopping for vintage western shirts or Hermès neckties,´´ sat idly by, staving off yawns and fighting the impulse that the whole thing was a massive waste of time. Despite his own indifference, however, what gradually emerged as Chabon ferried his son to and from fashion shows was a deep respect for his son´s passion. The piece quickly became a viral sensation. With the GQ story as its centerpiece, and featuring six additional essays plus an introduction, Pops illuminates the meaning, magic, and mysteries of fatherhood as only Michael Chabon can. 1.

Michael Chabon, author of The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay, Manhood for Amateurs and Moonglow, returns with a collection of heartfelt, humorous and insightful essays on the meaning of fatherhood. You are born into a family, and those are your people, and they know you and they love you, and if you are lucky they even, on occasion, manage to understand you. And that ought to be enough. But it is never enough. In 2016, Michael acted as reluctant minder to his son, Abraham Chabon, then 13, on a trip to Paris Men’s Fashion Week. Possessed of a precocious sense of style, Abe was in his element chatting with designers he idolised and turning a critical eye to the most ´lit´ runway looks; Chabon Sr., whose interest in clothing stops at ´thrift-shopping for vintage Western shirts´, was too hot. Despite his own indifference, however, what emerged was a deep respect for his son´s passion, for his bravery in the face of conformity, and a sense of awe in seeing him transform into his own person. With ´My Son, the Prince of Fashion´ at its centre, this collection features gems on the magic and mysteries of fatherhood. Whether you know the joy and struggles of being a father or were shaped by one, you will find a home in these stunning essays. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Michael Chabon.
