Eagerly awaited new novella by the much acclaimed Michael Chabon, author of the Pulitzer Prize winning The Amazing Advertures of Kavalier and Clay. In the Pulitzer Prize winning novel The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay, prose magician Michael Chabon conjured up the golden age of comic books; intertwining history, legend, and storytelling verve. In The Final Solution, he has condensed his boundless vision to craft a short, suspenseful tale of compassion and wit that re imagines the classic 19th century detective story. In deep retirement in the English countryside, an 89 year old man, vaguely recollected by locals as a once famous detective, is more concerned with his beekeeping than with his fellow man. Into his life wanders Linus Steinman, nine years old and mute, who has escaped from Nazi Germany with his sole companion: an African grey parrot. What is the meaning of the mysterious strings of German numbers the bird spews out a top secret SS code? The keys to a series of Swiss bank accounts perhaps? Or something more sinister? Is the solution to this last case the real explanation of the mysterious boy and his parrot beyond even the reach of the once famed sleuth? Subtle revelations lead the reader to a wrenching resolution. This brilliant homage is the work of a master storyteller at the height of his powers.
