Event Type

Our exploration of Jewish fantasy and science fiction continues with Gentlemen of the Road: A Tale of Adventure by Michael Chabon, Pulitzer prize-winning author of The Yiddish Policeman’s Union and The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay. From the Jewish Book Council: “Essentially a buddy story, it’s a Jewish tale and a dynasty saga set in the Khazar Empire in about the year 950. The characters manage to be both broad caricature and all-too-human at the same time. In true magazine-serial style, cliffhanger suspense abounds, keeping the reader as breathless as the characters who leap on and off horses, throw unerring spears and wield mighty swords.”
