The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay

Recently, I have been listening to “The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay” by Michael Chabon, as I drive back and forth to the studio. If you love comics and New York, you really must read or listen to it. And, you needn’t love comics to appreciate this WWII era story of two young men, finding their way amidst the backdrop of pre-war NYC. I am only 1/3 of the way through it and it is already on my list of the top 20 stories ever told. It is beautifully written, in a style one does not often see these days. The characters are real and rich. I keep finding myself sitting in the car, once I’ve reached my destination, waiting for a chapter to finish … and tempted to stay in the car for the next one.
