The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay

A Novel. Winner of the Pulitzer Prize 2001

One night in 1939, Josef Kavalier shuffles into his cousin Sam Clay's cramped New York bedroom, his arduous and nerve-racking escape from Prague finally achieved. Little does he realise that this is the beginning of an extraordinary friendship and even more fruitful business partnership. Together, they create a comic strip called 'The Escapist', its superhero a Nazi-busting saviour who liberates the oppressed around the world. 'The Escapist' makes them their fortune and their name, but Joe can think of only one thing: How can he effect a real-life escape, and free his family from the tyranny of Hitler? Michael Chabon's exceptional new novel is a thrilling tightrope walk between high comedy and bitter tragedy, ranging from the heady heights of the American Dream to the desperation and grief of the Second World War.
