In just one short week we begin the Telegraph Avenue Read Along. It's hosted by As the Crowe Flies (and Reads!), one of my favorite reading/travel blogs. I'm definitely not the uber Michael Chabon fan - but I am a fan. I read and wasn't particularly a fan of Wonder Boys. I've attempted The Yiddish Policeman's Union and wasn't able to get through it - though that may have had to do with the fact that I was in the process of obtaining a new job and thinking about moving. Also - it was lost on the me that the genre is magical realism - a fact that, now that I'm aware, has turned the book back on to me. I'll probably approach it again later this year.
But I have read and absolutely loved The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay. It was one of those books that gets down deep under your skin, that burrows its way into your heart and stays there - always warm and loving when recalled.
Here's the schedule, as laid out by our fearless leader:
The book isn't out yet, but if you find yourself intrigued and would like to pre-order - visit Odyssey Bookshop.
