sort of a whole chapter on me.

i finally got around to reading the amazing adventures of kavalier & clay. that and jonathan strange and dr norrel have been in my book pile for months,  mocking me, while i spent time with the sookie stackhouse series. kavalier & clay was just the sort of book to ween me off sookie.  i loved my trip into the world of joe kavaklier and sam clay, creative cousins that aspire to make a name for themselves in the world of 1940’s comic books. set largely in new york city and using world war two as another character michael chabon presents a dense and fully realized tale. every plot development surprised me. the story seemed so natural that i would swear that kavalier and clay were real. this is a book that will eventually be studied in high school, it’s a classic. now i have to muster up the strength for jonathan strange.
