Description

The New York Times bestseller, now available in paperback a big-hearted, exhilarating novel exploring the profoundly intertwined lives of two Oakland families.

An immensely gifted writer and magical prose stylist.
Michiko Kakutani, New York Times

New York Times bestselling, Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist Michael Chabon has transported readers to wonderful places: to New York City during the Golden Age of comic books (The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay); to an imaginary Jewish homeland in Sitka, Alaska (The Yiddish Policemen's Union); to discover The Mysteries of Pittsburgh. Now he takes us to Telegraph Avenue in a big-hearted and exhilarating novel that explores the profoundly intertwined lives of two Oakland, California families, one black and one white. In Telegraph Avenue, Chabon lovingly creates a world grounded in pop culture Kung Fu, 70s Blaxploitation films, vinyl LPs, jazz and soul music and delivers a bravura epic of friendship, race, and secret histories.
