Product Description
<p>“An immensely gifted writer and magical prose stylist.”<br />—Michiko Kakutani, <em>New York Times </em></p><p><em>New York Times</em> bestselling, Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist Michael Chabon has transported readers to wonderful places: to New York City during the Golden Age of comic books (<em>The Amazing Adventures of</em> <em>Kavalier & Clay</em>); to an imaginary Jewish homeland in Sitka, Alaska (<em>The Yiddish Policemen’s Union</em>); to discover <em>The Mysteries of Pittsburgh</em>. Now he takes us to <em>Telegraph Avenue</em> in a big-hearted and exhilarating novel that explores the profoundly intertwined lives of two Oakland, California families, one black and one white. In <em>Telegraph Avenue</em>, 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.<br /></p>
