As a devoted son, as a passionate husband, and above all as a father, Chabon's memories of childhood, of his parents' marriage and divorce, of moments of painful adolescent comedy and giddy encounters with the popular art and literature of his own youth, are like a theme played by the mad quartet of which he now finds himself co-conductor. At once dazzling, hilarious, and moving, Manhood for Amateurs is destined to become a classic.

I love Michael Chabon but this audiobook sample was too short to really capture my attention. It was an interesting snapshot on Chabon's love for music but I didn't really connect with it. I don't have the same love of music as he does, although I did find this quirky story charming at the points where Chabon interacted with his mom's boyfriend.
