I'm re-reading the Pulizer Prize winner "The Adventures of Kavalier and Clay" by Michael Chabon.
Wow....after kinda blazing through it the first time I didnt grab everything, but if you're a reader that loves to write too....get this novel. It's about a young man who is an artist in Nazi invaded Prague who escapes after being trained in Escape Artistry. He makes his way to Queens to live with a distant cousin and his family. The cousin is looking for someone to help him develop his new found love....Comic Books.
The language is fucking amazing, the imagery is insanely vivid, and the story is just fun.
Shouldnt be hard to find, it's only a 5 or 6 year old book. Check it out, it rocks.
