Jeff Glor talks to Pulitzer Prize-wining author Michael Chabon about "The Astonishing Secret of Awesome Man." It is Chabon's first picture book.
Michael Chabon: My then five-year-old son. Watching him struggle with all the typical little-boy issues of self-control and the limits, both practical and social, of physical strength. Watching him love putting on a cape.
MC: How much harder than I the incredible artist, Jake Parker, had to work.
MC: I would just be getting into my time machine to go back in time and strangle Hitler in his cradle. Or to persuade Stanley Kubrick to go ahead and make Napoleon.
MC: A beautiful novel, "A Pigeon and a Boy," by the Israeli novelist Meir Shalev.
MC: Movie and TV work, for the time being, while I recharge my novel-writing batteries; I just turned in my next novel, "Telegraph Avenue," to my editor.
