  1. May 24, 1963: Happy birthday, Michael Chabon! The Pulitzer Prize-winner has written about everything from golems to jazz to the horrors of not being able to stop writing. He turns 50 today.

  2. OMG, I love this guy. He’s so prolific. The only one I read was The Yiddish Policeman’s Union, which took me a while to get into because I had to look up so many words, but once in and the ending… blew me away. 🙂
