The Pittsburgh of Michael Chabon

The novel grew from Chabon’s own concerns with completing an unrealized noveland so he decided to write a story about, in part, an author who couldn’t finish his own work. The main character of Grady Tripp is allegedly based on University of Pittsburgh professor, Chuck Kinder, who taught the undergraduate Chabon in the early 1980s.

Wonder Boys was made into a film and was filmed in Pittsburgh, including locations at Carnegie Mellon University, Chatham College, and Shady Side Academy. Other locations included Beaver, Rochester, and Rostraver Township.
