Michael Chabon's Maps and Legends

After finishing My Lady Ludlow and while awaiting Sylvia's Lovers to arrive from Amazon, I briefly dived into Micahel Chabon's Maps and Legends, subtitled "Reading and Writing Along the Borderlands."

The set of essays started out strongly, with the first four essays, on the short story, Sherlockians and the dynamism of popular fiction, and the norse myths, but lost my interest when the essays seemed to be exclusively about comics, which interest me not at all.

I still have his novel, Gentlemen of the Road, on my shelf and it looks intriguing and he's an entertaining writer, given the subject matter interests me, so hopefully I'll get to it soon.
