I've finished only one Chabon novel - the Pulitzer-winning The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay. I started The Yiddish Policeman's Union a few years later and got about three-quarters of the way through it before life got in the way. When I tried to pick it up again a few months later, I'd forgotten too much of the plot to make sense of what was happening.
I bought Chabon's first collection of nonfiction, Maps and Legends, because it was beautiful. I haven't read it. When Borders was going out of business last summer, I picked up his second collection of nonfiction, Manhood for Amateurs for a dollar. A few months ago when I was in Augusta, Georgia for work, I picked up The Final Solution at a used book store.
