Jim James: best books

Jim James, the frontman of the Grammy-nominated American rock band My Morning Jacket, recently released a George Harrison tribute album. And he told The Week magazine about his six best books.

One book on the list:
The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay by Michael Chabon (Picador, $16).

The mini-universe created within these pages, lost in time but forever timely and relevant, never fails to move. The human experience, the heights of emotion, the depths of sorrow, love, war, loss, and comic books are all vividly portrayed in Chabon’s Pulitzer Prize–winning novel.
Read about another book on James' list.
