Chabon is best known for his numerous award-winning novels which includes Wonder Boys, Moonglow and The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay which earned him his first Pulitzer Prize award. He is also one of the writers for tv shows such as Hulu’s Eldorado and Patrick Stewart’s upcoming Star Trek series.
