I read Michael Chabon's Gentlemen of the Road when it was serialized in the New York Times Sunday magazine, and then again when the book was released. For me, the book worked extremely well in serial form, with each chapter serving as its own adventure. This is a pulp novel well executed by the best literary mind of my generation. It's not as deep or well-crafted as Chabon's other novel this year, The Yiddish Policemen's Union, but then again, few novels are.
