    The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay by Michael Chabon. The novel won the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction in 2001. It follows the lives of two Jewish cousins before, during, and after World War II. The idea that art is capable of providing an escape from the horrors of the real world is an underlying theme.

"The reason death sticks so closely to life isn't biological necessity - it's envy. Life is so beautiful that death has fallen in love with it, a jealous, possessive love that grabs at what it can."
