The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay

The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"Narrator David Colacci delivers a lively and entertaining reading of Chabon's tale of loyalty, love, and comic books. Winner of the Pulitzer Prize, the novel charts the lives of Sammy 'Clay' Klayman and Josef Kavalier, two distant cousins brought together by the horrors of WWII. Clay is a New Yorker who has never ventured beyond the boundaries of his borough, while Kavalier is an amateur magician fleeing Nazi-occupied Prague. United by their shared passion for the burgeoning art of comic books, they create the Escapist, an action hero intended to strike back at the forces of fascism. Launching the successful franchise sends the pair on real-life adventures of their own, wherein they confront the underground Nazi movement, the complications of family and sexual identity, and hidden sides of themselves. Colacci moves fluidly between the many characters who populate Chabon's novel, creating voices that rely on everything from a host of foreign accents to the vernacular of New York in the 1940s. This audio edition is a great introduction to Kavalier and Clay and well worth a listen for those already familiar with the novel. (June)" Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
