the mysteries of pittsburgh
I just read 'The Mysteries of Pittsburgh' by Michael Chabon. It was just lying around the house, and I like Michael Chabon, so I decided to read it. I gotta say, it was great. I would recommend it to anyone. It might have a had an even deeper significance with me because it's about a college grad in his summer after he graduates and all the crazy stuff that happens to him. It sounds kind lame from that description, but it's really well written, and it's easy to see how the author went on to win the pulitzer prize. The book really has an interesting mix of style and vulnerability.
Oh and I guess there's a movie based on it, but it probably sucks.
