Twelve books with irresistible titles

At The Barnes & Noble Book Blog Joel Cunningham tagged twelve books with the most irresistible titles, including:
The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay, by Michael Chabon

I think the title took this one at least partway to its eventual Pulitzer. It was definitely responsible for my buying it (in hardcover, no less!), despite the fact that I was then a poor college student. I can’t imagine a more appropriate moniker for a book about a couple of guys writing superhero comics in the 1940s.
Read about another book on the list.

The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay is on Sam Anderson's list of five books we'll still be talking about in 2020.
