My favorite Chabon since Kavalier & Clay, by a large measure. He reimagines his family’s story in another intimate yet somehow epic sweep across the 20th Century. Full of beautiful and clever prose. Highly recommended.

This is a story of Coyote and his ultimate defeat. At least his defeat this time. A lovely blend of Norse and Native American mythology, shaped into their own story to bring the world of the Fay to our world. It has much to do with baseball, and revels in the details of description and plot. The main hero crew, three children and the various characters they meet, are interesting and up to the challenge of Coyote, whether they know it or not.

3.5, some parts beautiful, some contrived. There was a lot that reminded me of my own family story, and perhaps that is also why I feel reserved in my praise for the book.

I'm more than twenty years late to the party for Michael Chabon's hefty novel about the origins and heyday of comic books. THE AMAZING ADVENTURES OF KAVALIER & CLAY won him the Pulitzer, and well-deserved for such a dense, ambitious project about two dissimilar friends (and cousins) who created a memorial superhero for the comics in "The Escapist." They are Jewish, of course, as Chabon's characters usually are, and this is especially important as the story begins before the U.S. enters WWII, and continues through the war years and into the post-war Eisenhower years. So the tragedy of the Holocaust looms large in the background. It is also very much about male friendships and homophobia, another frequent theme in Chabon's fiction. (This is my fourth Chanon.) The book has already been read and reviewed thousands of times, so I will pretty much stop here, although I should probably confess that I almost gave up on it a few times in the first three hundred pages, as it seemed to drag here and there. But once I passed that halfway point (in its six hundred-plus pages), it suddenly picked up speed and began rolling downhill like a runway train. Enuf said. Good book, Mr Chabon. Very highly recommended.
