| Fiction: The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier ,&, Clay: A Novel|
by Michael Chabon
Like the comic books that animate and inspire it, The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay is both larger than life and of it too. Complete with golems and magic and miraculous escapes and evil nemeses and even hand-to-hand Antarctic battle, it pursues the most important questions of love and war, dreams and art, across pages brimming with longing and hope. Samuel Klayman--self-described little man, city boy, and Jew--first meets Josef Kavalier when his mother shoves him aside in his own bed, telling him to make room for their cousin, a refugee from Nazi-occupied Prague.

| Poetry: Different Hours: Poems|
by Stephen Dunn
A wise and graceful new collection by one of our "major, indispensable poets" (Sidney Lea). The mysteries of Eros and Thanatos, the stubborn endurance of mind and body in the face of diminishment--these are the undercurrents of Stephen Dunn`s eleventh volume. "I am interested in exploring the `different` hours," he says, "not only of one`s life, but also of the larger historical and philosophical life beyond the personal." Read more...
