Coming of age in rural 1930s America with X-ray vision, the power to stop bullets, and the ability to fly isn’t exactly every boy’s story. So just how did Clark Kent, a shy farmer’s son, grow up to be the Man of Steel? Follow young Clark’s whirlwind journey from Kansas to New York City’s Daily Planet. This ace reporter is not the only person leading a double life in a teeming metropolis, just the only one able to leap tall buildings in a single bound—a skill that comes in handy when battling powerful criminal masterminds like scheming Lex Luthor and fascist robots. But can Clark’s midwestern charm save the day and win the heart of stunning, seen-it-all newspaperwoman Lois Lane? Or is that a job for Superman?

About the Author:

Tom De Haven is the author of eight novels, including the Derby Dugan trilogy, and the nonfiction book Our Hero: Superman on Earth. A frequent contributor to The New York Times, he lives in Virginia, where he teaches creative writing at Virginia Commonwealth University.

From AudioFile:

It's Superman all right, but not one most fans have ever seen. Tom De Haven's realistic story explores how a nervous Superboy becomes a confident Superman in a very adult story. Scott Brick lays out a good yarn that begins in 1935 and ends in 1938, when Superman goes public. Brick's trademark delivery, with sentences ending in upturned final syllables, works well in this story of a fumbling Clark Kent learning to shed his Smallville skin. Superman purists may object to Clark's smoking and drinking, and to his leaving Pa Kent alone on the farm while he takes up wandering the country like Woody Guthrie. Likewise, Lois Lane is surprisingly slutty, and Lex Luthor is almost unrecognizable as a Manhattan alderman. M.S. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
