The Mysteries of Pittsburgh

I grabbed Michael Chabon’s The Mysteries of Pittsburgh off of the library shelf three weeks ago. I was actually hoping for The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay, but it wasn’t there. I read Summerland years ago and loved it, so the combination of that and the reputation of Kavalier & Clay, made me feel confident taking a chance on his first novel.

Unfortunately I didn’t make notes of my thoughts when I finished the book, but I can say that I LOVED IT. I was totally engrossed in the characters, in the internal processes of Art, the mystery that is Cleveland (and oh, did he live up to the hype when he did show up!), the sexual tension, the insanity…

Definitely recommended.

(And, ooh, they made a movie of it, too, to be released this year!)
