“On the surface, Telegraph Avenue is the story of Archy and Nat -- longtime proprietors of Brokeland Records, a community staple in the variegated neighborhoods of Oakland, California -- who face an invasion of Walmart proportions. But intertwined with their struggle is an exploration of so much more: love, in all its forms; race; gentrification; modern medicine; blaxploitation films; vinyl records; and the absolute greatness of jazz and funk. I don't think there's a writer alive who can structure a sentence the way Chabon does, and he's given us yet another masterful, unsparing novel whose vivid characters will inhabit your heart long after the final page.”
