It’s hard to know where to begin with a book like The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay. It’s big in a lot of senses: 639 pages, spanning nearly 30 years across the lives of two men, and dealing with what the back of the book blurb calls “American possibility,” which really means a bunch of complex and difficult emotions, themes, and ideas that are hard to put into a single word, all of which are kind of not American.
