The amazing adventures of Kavalier and Clay
1939. New York City. The United States is nearing entrance into World War II. With that backdrop two young men, Czech immigrant Josef Kavalier and his cousin Sam Klayman are about to light a spark that ignites the Golden Age of comic books. The fantastic exploits of their creations tell only half the story. At the heart of this Pulitzer Prize-winning story are their real adventures: from romantic trysts, life in the army, feats of illusion, and the paths that Kavalier and Clay each take in the years following the explosion of comic books.
