He has been called first rate by the Los Angeles Times, "a flat-out wonderful writer" by the Chicago Tribune. Werewolves in Their Youth is Michael Chabon's wild collection of nine astonishing stories. Beautifully crafted, stunning in their impact, these stories take us into the everyday normal horror at the heart of people's lives, of young people and mid-life people, caught at emotional moments of turning point and change. Frightening, funny, each story is superb, and shot through with Chabon's unique vision and uncanny understanding of people, their mysteries and nightmares, hilarity and pain.

Read these stories, which have appeared in The New Yorker, Harper's, Esquire, and other magazines. Read and discover or rediscover the brilliance of a great American fiction talent.
