M.R. James was one of the most accomplished scholars of his generation, a brilliant, internationally known authority on early Christian manuscripts. He was in turn a Fellow, Dean, and Provost of Kings College, Cambridge, and then finally the Provost of Eton, where he died a much-loved and revered figure in 1936.
Michael Chabon is the author of Wonder Boys, The Mysteries of Pittsburgh, and The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay, which won the Pulitzer Prize for fiction.
