Michael Chabon and Ayelet Waldman are getting a sitter, for in a surprising and heartening move they appear together tonight. It should make for an interesting dynamic: We know Waldmans fans will be eyeing Chabon, going mmmm-hmmm, because of some of what shes written. (We mean about the sex with Chabon.) His fans, on the other hand, could be screaming about Star Trek, or Jewish law, or genre fiction to be frank, he's been all over the place, thematically. Today, both are armed with books on issues relating to and resulting from procreating several times over. Hers is called Bad Mother. His is called Manhood for Amateurs. Dont worry; theyre good parents, despite the titles. This is them being witty theyre writers.
