Summerland è un posto magico, dove non piove mai. Il sole splende sempre in un cielo azzurrissimo sopra il prato più smeraldino che si possa immaginare. Il posto ideale per giocare a baseball. Ethan Feld, però, a costo di deludere il suo papà, non vuole più vedere una mazza da baseball in vita sua. Lui è il peggior giocatore di baseball della storia. O almeno è convinto di esserlo. Ma non può mollare tutto, proprio no. Perché lui è il prescelto dai Vicini, alias il Piccolo Popolo, alias i folletti, alias i Ferisher, per guidare la squadra di baseball che dovrà sfidare e battere Coyote. Età di lettura: da 10 anni.

Mixing comic, even slapstick, events with the serious theme of bright promise gone awry, Chabon has produced an impeccably constructed novel that sparkles with inventiveness and wit neatly permeated with rue. The once-promising eponymous "wonder boys" are Grady Tripp and Terry Crabtree, friends since college, where they both determined to make their mark in literature. Now they are self-destructive adults whose rare meetings occasion an eruption of zany events. Narrator Grady, a professor/novelist whose unfinished work-in-progress, Wonder Boys, stands at 2000-plus endlessly revised pages, has destroyed three marriages through compulsive philandering and a marijuana habit.

Chabon's storytelling, in this alternate history of a world where Jews were settled in Alaska after World War II, is vivid enough, with inventive metaphors packed in like tapestry threads, but Peter Riegert's versatile voice makes the invented society even more tangible. Told through the eyes of Meyer Landsman, a police detective investigating a murder, the novel occurs in a strange time to be a Jew, as several characters ruefully put it: the special Jewish district will soon be controlled by Alaska again. In a bonus interview on the last disc, Chabon relates his desire to write about a place where Yiddish was an official language.

Roused out of retirement, a former detective, now a beekeeper, is identified only as "the old man." The story opens in the summer of 1944 when he sees a boy with a parrot on his shoulder walking along the train tracks. The boy is Linus Steinman, a refugee from Nazi Germany who lives with Mr. and Mrs. Panicker and their grown son in their boardinghouse. Though Linus doesn't speak, his parrot, Bruno, recites strings of numbers in German, as well as bits of poetry and snatches of songs. When a boarder is murdered and Bruno is kidnapped, the local police try to engage the beekeeper in helping them solve the crimes. He agrees to help, but only to find the bird. Thus begins his last case, his "final solution."

The devil appears in many guises in these stories and fables collected by science fiction and fantasy writer Tim Pratt. He's often nattily dressed in sharkskin or a pinstriped double-breasted suit with fedora, or, as in Stephen King's story, a simple black suit with gold watch chain. Whatever his appetites, for tasty little boys, nuclear destruction, or a little fun with a bored teenager on a summer afternoon, with his knacks for shape-changing and time/space travel, the devil doesn't play fair.
