Description: Gentlemen of the Road by Michael Chabon—now available in Del Rey trade
paperback—is as swashbuckling a tale as one could hope to find, containing an
usurped heir to the throne, bandits, elephants, battle-axes, secret disguises, cliff-
hanging suspense, beautiful houris, and everything else required for a grand
adventure. The gentlemen of the road are Zelikman, a melancholy, itinerant
physician fond of exotic headgear, and Amram, a gray-haired giant of a man who
is Zelikman's brother under the skin and fellow blade for hire. The book is lushly
illustrated by award-winning artist Gary Gianni.
