The Amazing Adventures of Kavelier and Clay

What a wonderful and readable book. It's rare to see a novel of such epic scope handled so deftly - the characters are beautifully drawn, the details are perfect, and the various themes, recurring images and metaphors are woven expertly into the story. I finished the novel last night, but I'm still half living in that world and wondering what happened next. We'll be discussing Kavalier and Clay on Monday at my reading group, and I can hardly wait. I also plan to find everything else Chabon's written and read it all, asap.
