Michael Chabon has given us a wide range of male characters in his fiction, including young students and middle age academics in “The Mysteries of Pittsburgh” and “Wonder Boys,” a hardened private detective in “The Yiddish Policemen’s Union” and two World War II-era comic book creators in the Pulitzer-prize winning “The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay.”
Chabon’s newest male character is himself in his first work of non-fiction, “Manhood for Amateurs,” a collection of essays. Monday on the NewsHour, Jeffrey Brown talked to Chabon about what he calls “the pleasures and regrets of a father, husband and son.”
