The 2001 Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay, is the story of two ambitious young men; Sammy Clay, a New York City writer, and his cousin, Josef Kavalier, a refugee draftsman from Prague, brought to the States by the events of the Second World War. Arriving on his cousin's doorstep in 1939, the two embark on a friendship - and subsequent working relationship - sparked by the emerging concept of the comic book. Using narrative, flashbacks, and shifting perspectives, Chabon whisks us away on a journey spanning some 15 years, exploring themes of sexuality, loyalty, family, politics, and censorship, all while deftly sketching a picture of a rapidly-changing American society.
