Läs Gentlemen of the Road (aka Jews with swords) helt gratis!

Michael Chabon fick Pulitzerpriset 2001 för romanen The Adventures of Kavalier and Clay, som även översattes till svenska och gavs ut i pocket. Kavalier and Clay är skitbra. Så bra att Chabon faktiskt tillhör en av mina favoritförfattare trots att jag bara läst just denna bok. Just nu är Chabon aktuell med Gentlemen of the Road, en bok han själv beskrivit som ”a swashbucking adventure story set around the year 1000.” Är du sugen på att läsa Gentlemen of the Road men har lite tight i kassan (inte helt olikt mig själv) så finns den att läsa gratis (och helt lagligt) på New York Magazines hemsida där den tidigare publicerats i 15 delar! Kapitel 1-3 kan du läsa direkt, men vill du läsa resten så måste du registrera dig på New York Magazines hemsida vilket tar ungefär 30 sekunder och kostar 0 kr. Det kan det kanske vara värt? På tal om Chabon så är det en skam att inte fler av hans böcker översatts till svenskan. Fy på er, lata förlag!

Första meningen: "KINGDON OF ARRAN, in the Caucasus Mountains, between the Black Sea and the Caspian Sea, A.D. 950 — For numberless years a myna had astounded travelers to the caravansary with its ability to spew indecencies in 10 languages, and before the fight broke out everyone assumed the old blue-tongued devil on its perch by the fireplace was the one who maligned the giant African with such foulness and verve." Rätt lovande, eller hur?

Jag vet vad ni tänker: "en så här cool kille måste ju vara helgrym, och var köpte han slipsen?" Det är okej att vara avundsjuk.

pet insurance for dogs The owner of the purebred dog will be glad to discover that heredity conditions will be covered under both these plans. If your pet is an indoor animal only and your annual veterinary bills are for check-ups then you might want to think about opening a bank account for pet emergencies.
