Kate writes: This is a magical, child like merging of the fantasy world of the comic book with that of the horrors of the holocaust. Chabon manages never to lose sight of the Nazi menace while putting it into completely new contexts, including magic, superheroes, Houdini-like escapes, golems, and comic book characters, and ranging from Prague to New York and Antarctica. It is a novel of huge scope--and it is hugely entertaining!
