The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay by Michael Chabon

The third of four book giveaways going on this week at Adventures in Borkdom! I have not read this yet, but I will be very soon! I received two copies of this book for Christmas, and so, I will be giving one away (I’m keeping the hardcover, gently-used copy that I received from a fellow blogger).

I am offering a paperback, brand-spanking new, obviously never written-in copy of The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay by Michael Chabon. It’s highly acclaimed and won a Pulitzer–we all need to read this book!

Here’s Goodreads’ synopsis of the book:

Joe Kavalier, a young Jewish artist who has also been trained in the art of Houdini-esque escape, has just smuggled himself out of Nazi-invaded Prague and landed in New York City. His Brooklyn cousin Sammy Clay is looking for a partner to create heroes, stories, and art for the latest novelty to hit America – the comic book. Drawing on their own fears and dreams, Kavalier and Clay create the Escapist, the Monitor, and Luna Moth, inspired by the beautiful Rosa Saks, who will become linked by powerful ties to both men. With exhilarating style and grace, Michael Chabon tells an unforgettable story about American romance and possibility.

A Visit from the Goon Squad by Jennifer Egan

Here is the second of four book giveaways going on this week at Adventures in Borkdom.

I am offering a paperback, only once-read, never written-in copy of A Visit from the Goon Squad! People, this is a Pulitzer-winner, and I loved it!

Here’s Goodreads’ synopsis of the book:

NATIONAL BESTSELLER National Book Critics Circle Award Winner PEN/Faulkner Award Finalist A New York Times Book Review Best Book
One of the Best Books of the Year:
Boston Globe, Chicago Tribune, The Daily Beast, The Miami Herald, The Minneapolis Star-Tribune, Newsday, NPR’s On Point, O, the Oprah Magazine, People, Publishers Weekly, Salon, San Francisco Chronicle, Seattle Times, Slate, Time, The Washington Post, and Village Voice
Bennie is an aging former punk rocker and record executive. Sasha is the passionate, troubled young woman he employs. Here Jennifer Egan brilliantly reveals their pasts, along with the inner lives of a host of other characters whose paths intersect with theirs. With music pulsing on every page, A Visit from the Goon Squad is a startling, exhilarating novel of self-destruction and redemption.

And here is my review: BOOK REVIEW: A Visit from the Goon Squad
