Product Details

684 WINNER OF THE PULITZER PRIZE The beloved, award-winning "The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay," a Michael Chabon masterwork, is the American epic of two boy geniuses named Joe Kavalier and Sammy Clay. Now with special bonus material by Michael Chabon. A towering, swash-buckling thrill of a book ("Newsweek"), hailed as Chabon s magnum opus ("The New York Review of Books"), "The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay" is a triumph of originality, imagination, and storytelling, an exuberant, irresistible novel that begins in New York City in 1939. A young escape artist and budding magician named Joe Kavalier arrives on the doorstep of his cousin, Sammy Clay. While the long shadow of Hitler falls across Europe, America is happily in thrall to the Golden Age of comic books, and in a distant corner of Brooklyn, Sammy is looking for a way to cash in on the craze. He finds the ideal partner in the aloof, artistically gifted Joe, and together they embark on an adventure that takes them deep into the heart of Manhattan, and the heart of old-fashioned American ambition. From the shared fears, dreams, and desires of two teenage boys, they spin comic book tales of the heroic, fascist-fighting Escapist and the beautiful, mysterious Luna Moth, otherworldly mistress of the night. Climbing from the streets of Brooklyn to the top of the Empire State Building, Joe and Sammy carve out lives, and careers, as vivid as cyan and magenta ink. Spanning continents and eras, this superb book by one of America s finest writers remains one of the defining novels of our modern American age. "NEW YORK TIMES "BESTSELLER Finalist for the PEN/Faulkner Award, National Book Critics Circle Award, and "Los Angeles Times" Book Prize Winner of the Bay Area Book Reviewers Award and the New York Society Library Book Award Named one of the 10 Best Books of the Decade by "Entertainment Weekly""
