One night in 1939, Josef Kavalier shuffles into his cousin Sam Clay's cramped New York bedroom, his nerve-racking escape from Prague finally achieved. Little does he realise that this is the beginning of an extraordinary friendship and even more fruitful business partnership. Together, they create a comic strip called The Escapist, its superhero a Nazi-busting saviour who liberates the oppressed around the world. The Escapist makes their fortune, but Joe can think of only one thing: how can he effect a real-life escape, and free his family from the tyranny of Hitler?
"Absolutely gosh-wow, super-colossal- smart, funny, and a continual pleasure to read."- The Washington Post Book World
"Towering, swash-buckling thrill of a book.. the themes are masterfully explored, leaving the book's sense of humor intact and characters so tightly developed they could walk off the page."- Newsweek
