Michael Chabon, New York Times best-selling author of Wonder Boys, is widely praised for his ability to hold readers spellbound with his vividly told tales. In The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay, the Pulitzer Prize winner, a Jewish boy-and budding escape artist- smuggles himself out of Nazi-era Prague and arrives at the home of his cousin in New York City. Together, the boys set out to create comic books of wild imaginings.

"A witty and sometimes touching story of two talented Jewish cousins--one a writer, the other an artist. At the beginning of WWII they collaborate and create comic book action heroes who battle Hitler and his minions. Novelist Michael Chabon and reader David Colacci also are a dynamic duo. Chabon's writing is imaginative and articulate, and Colacci's reading is glib, powerful, and passionate. Despite all the wit, there is some serious stuff lurking below the surface and human tragedy around the corner. This is the first abridgment sampled--6 tapes--that was complete enough not to have lost the flavor of the original writing, over 700 pages. This thoughtful and entertaining work is so well presented by Colacci--even down to the Yiddish accents--that his performance a truly memorable experience. A.L.H. (c) AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine"
