InTrickster Makes This World, Lewis Hyde brings to life the playful and disruptive side of human imagination as it is embodied in trickster mythology. He first visits the old storiesHermes in Greece, Eshu in West Africa, Krishna in India, Coyote in North America, among othersand then holds them up against the lives and work of more recent creators: Picasso, Duchamp, Ginsberg, John Cage, and Frederick Douglass. Twelve years after its first publication,Trickster Makes This Worldauthoritative in its scholarship, loose-limbed in its stylehas taken its place among the great works of modern cultural criticism. This new edition includes an introduction by Michael Chabon.

Harold Kodais Curator in Charge andAndrew Boltonis Curator, both at The Costume Institute , The Metropolitan Museum of Art. They are coauthors ofChanel(2005),Dangerous Liaisons: Fashion and Furniture in the Eighteenth Century(2006), andPoiret(2007).Michael Chabon was born in Washington, D.C. on May 24, 1963. He received a B.A. in English literature from the University of Pittsburgh in 1985 and a Master of Fine Arts degree in English writing at the University of California at Irvine in 1987. Chabon found success at the age of 24, when William Morrow publishing house offered him $155,000, a near-record sum, for the rights to his first novel The Mysteries of Pittsburgh, which was his thesis in graduate school. After The Mysteries of Pittsburgh became a national bestseller, he began writing a series of short stories about a little boy dealing with his parents' divorce. The stories, which in part appeared in The New Yorker and G.Q., were bound together in 1991 into a volume titled A Model World and Other Stories. His other works include Wonder Boys, The Astonishing Secret of Awesome Man, and Telegraph Avenue. In 2001 he won the Pulitzer Prize for fiction for his novel The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay.
