Originally published in fifteen separate instalments in The New York Times, Michael Chabon's episodic adventure, Gentleman of the Road is now collected in single swashbuckling volume. I love the "Boy's Own" feel of the design of this book published as a smart, small hard cover by Sceptre - far nicer than the US edition that appeared from Del Rey in October. And I love the sentence that opens Chabon's afterword too... "The original, working - and in my heart the true - title of the short novel you hold in your hands was Jews with Swords."
