The world's most popular and enduring super hero and acclaimed novelist Tom
De Havencome together to create the extraordinary It's Superman!—a novel that reinvents the early years of the Man of Steel. It takes an entirely fresh approach to the emergence of his superpowers and the start of his newspaper career, following him from rural 1930s Kansas across america to Hollywood in its golden age, and then to New York City. He meets a worldly Lois Lane and conniving political boss Lex Luthor, and begins his battles against criminal masterminds, mad scientists, and supervillains inspired by fascists. Sure to appeal to fans of the Derby Dugan trilogy and the novel The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay, as well as devoted Superman readers, It's Superman is a fun and fast-paced novel of thrilling invention, heroic escapades, ill-fitting costumes, and super-sized coming-of-age angst.
Tom De Haven is the author of eight novels, including the Derby Dugan trilogy, hailed as a "wild ride" by the Boston Globe and "brimming with life and characters" by the New York Times Books Review. A frequent contributor to Entertainment Weekly and the New York Times, he lives in Virginia.
