న Easy reader ౷ The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay (with bonus content): A Novel  ಅ Kindle Ebook By Michael Chabon ಢ న Easy reader ౷ The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay (with bonus content): A Novel ಅ Kindle Ebook By Michael Chabon ಢ Like the comic books that animate and inspire it, The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier roams the globe, performing amazing feats and coming to the aid of those who languish in tyranny s chains Before they know it, Kavalier and Clay as Sam Klayman has come to be known find themselves at the epicenter of comics golden age. But Joe Kavalier is driven by motives far complex than your average hack In fact, his first act as a comic book artist is to deal Hitler a very literal blow The cover of the first issue shows the Escapist delivering an immortal haymaker onto the Fhrer s realistically bloody jaw In subsequent years, the Escapist and his superhero allies take on the evil Iron Chain and their leader Attila Haxoff their battles drawn with an intensity that grows disturbing as Joe s efforts to rescue his family fail He s fighting their war with brush and ink, Joe thinks, and the idea sustains him long enough to meet the beautiful Rosa Saks, a surrealist artist and surprisingly retrograde muse But when even that fiction fails him, Joe performs an escape of his own, leaving Rosa and Sammy to pick up the pieces in some increasingly wrong headed ways More amazing adventures follow but reader, why spoil the fun Suffice to say, Michael Chabon writes novels like the Escapist busts locks Previous books such as The Mysteries of Pittsburgh and Wonder Boys have prose of equal shimmer and wit, and yet here he seems to have finally found a canvas big enough for his gifts The whole enterprise seems animated by love for his alternately deluded, damaged, and painfully sincere characters for the quirks and curious innocence of tough talking wartime New York and, above all, for comics themselves, the inspirations and lucubrations of five hundred aging boys dreaming as hard as they could Far from negating such pleasures, the Holocaust s presence in the novel only makes them pressing Art, if not capable of actually fighting evil, can at least offer a gesture of defiance and hope a way out, in other words, of a world gone completely mad Comic book critics, Joe notices, dwell on the pernicious effect, on young minds, of satisfying the desire to escape As if there could be any noble or necessary service in life Indeed Mary ParkVirtuoso Chabon takes intense delight in the practice of his art, and never has his joy been palpable than in this funny and profound tale of exile, love, and magic In his last novel, The Wonder Boys 1995 , Chabon explored the shadow side of literary aspirations Here he revels in the crass yet inventive and comforting world of comic book superheroes, those masked men with mysterious powers who were born in the wake of the Great Depression and who carried their fans through the horrors of war with the guarantee that good always triumphs over evil In a luxuriant narrative that is jubilant and purposeful, graceful and complex, hilarious and enrapturing, Chabon chronicles the fantastic adventures of two Jewish cousins, one American, one Czech It s 1939 and Brooklynite Sammy Klayman dreams of making it big in the nascent world of comic books Joseph Kavalier has never seen a comic book, but he is an accomplished artist versed in the autoliberation techniques of his hero, Harry Houdini He effects a great and surreal escape from the Nazis, arrives in New York, and joins forces with Sammy They rapidly create the Escapist, the first of many superheroes emblematic of their temperaments and predicaments, and attain phenomenal success But Joe, tormented by guilt and grief for his lost family, abruptly joins the navy, abandoning Sammy, their work, and his lover, the marvelous artist and free spirit Rosa, who, unbeknownst to him, is carrying his child As Chabon equally adept at atmosphere, action, dialogue, and cultural commentary whips up wildly imaginative escapades punctuated by schtick that rivals the best of Jewish comedians, he plumbs the depths of the human heart and celebrates the healing properties of escapism and the genuine magic of art with exuberance and wisdom Donna Seaman Copyright American Library Association All
