Book description
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 thirteen, 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 idolized 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.
