Recenzii

'An epic fantasy for modern America.' Sunday Times 'Chabon's quirky, fluent style holds no hint of condescension and is sprinkled with wry remarks that will delight the young teenager.' Daily Telegraph 'Perhaps the surest sign of "Summerland's success is how the language of Chabon's fictional universe stays with you and the way he achieves a sweet genuinely affecting ending.' Time Out Praise for 'The Yiddish Policemen's Union': 'His almost ecstatically smart and sassy new novel...Chabon is a spectacular writer...a language magician. He has you laughing out loud, applauding the fun he has with language and the way he takes the task of a writer and runs delighted rings around it.' Guardian 'Michael Chabon's brilliant new novel starts with a bang...It hums with humour. It buzzes with gags...the accumulated reading experience is one of admiration, close to awe, at the vigour of Chabon's imagination...a hilarious, antic whirl of a novel.' Sunday Times 'It makes film noir look like film blanc by comparison.' Arena
