Moonglow by Michael Chabon (33/52)

Chabon continues to explore masculinity better than anyone with this bedside confession memoir/fictionalization of his grandfather. Telling stories of military service and old-age home romances, Chabon at times rejects the cliche of manhood and embraces it for all the complexity that it offers. Although there were stretches that dragged on, Chabon knows how to connect with the reader and offer something fresh. Overall, well worth reading.
