Overview

Joe Kavalier, un joven artista judío entrenado en las artes del escapismo del maestro Houdini, acaba de conseguir su mayor proeza: ha huido de la Praga ocupada por los nazis. Su objetivo es triunfar en América, ganar dinero rápidamente, y así poder liberar a su familia de las garras del imperio nazi. Joe Kavalier se traslada hasta el barrio de Brooklyn, Nueva York, donde vive su primo Sammy Clay. Desde el primer momento, los dos chicos entablan amistad y se lanzan al mercado incipiente del cómic, creando un superhéroe judío que viajará hasta Europa para luchar contra Hitler. En la alucinante recreación del Nueva York de los años cuarenta que ilumina la historia caben el amor, los celos, la bohemia, las reflexiones sobre la creación y toda una serie de elementos que recuerdan el glamouroso mundo de Michael Chabon, un mundo que nunca deja de ser tierno y divertido. Con esta novela, el autor de Los misterios de Pittsburg, Chicos prodigiosos y Un mundo modelo, nos ofrece un estimulante triunfo del lenguaje y la inventiva. Como Pastoral americana, de Philip Roth, o Submundo, de Don DeLillo, Las asombrosas aventuras de Kavalier y Clay es una novela universal, maestra. «De entre los jóvenes valores de la actual literatura norteamericana, Michael Chabon es probablemente el menos abiertamente experimental y el que mejor conecta con las mejores virtudes del clasicismo de la llamada generación del New Yorker, es decir, escritores como Truman Capote, J. D. Salinger o John Cheever. Comparte con ellos una concepción de la literatura basada en la solidez narrativa, la impecable construcción de personajes y la sabia combinación de drama y humor.» Mauricio Bach
