Author: Michael Chabon
Review by: t.r.
At 635 pages, Chabon's Pulitzer Prize winning novel is not a quick read. His story of two young Jewish boys coming of age before and during WWII, however, is worth the patience required to work through its considerable bulk. Unforgettable characters, a brilliantly layered and nuanced story, and meticulously researched details make this work more than deserving of its coveted award.
