Biography

With his insightful and often bittersweet stories of youth and imagination, author and screenwriter Michael Chabon made a profound impact on contemporary literature at the turn of the millennium. At the same time, not unlike past literary figures such as F. Scott Fitzgerald and William Faulkner, Chabon tried his hand in Hollywood, leading to success as writer of the novel-turned-film, "Wonder Boys" (2000) and "The Mysteries of Pittsburgh" (2009). He also ventured into the world of comic books, which naturally led to penning drafts of "X-Men" (2000) and "Spider-Man 2" (2004), though he only received screen credit for the latter. Nonetheless, Chabon had firmly established himself as the rare author equally adept at putting pen to paper for the big screen in a variety of genres.
