Michael Chabon's Great American Novel (and well-deserved winner of the 2001 Pulitzer Prize), exploring the lightly-fictionalised Golden Age comics industry in wartime New York through the eyes of cousins Sam Clay and Joe Kavalier, writer and author of The Escapist. This is a fantastic piece of work, deftly demonstrating Chabon's skill with a wide range of genres and milieus; highly recommended.
