Telegraph Avenue: A Novel

Michael Chabon


“An immensely talented author and magical prose stylist.”
—Michiko Kakutani, New York occasions

New York Times bestselling, Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist Michael Chabon has transported readers to brilliant areas: to manhattan urban in the course of the Golden Age of comedian books (The extraordinary Adventures of Kavalier & Clay); to an imaginary Jewish place of origin in Sitka, Alaska (The Yiddish Policemen’s Union); to find The Mysteries of Pittsburgh. Now he's taking us to Telegraph Avenue in a big-hearted and exhilarating novel that explores the profoundly intertwined lives of 2 Oakland, California households, one black and one white. In Telegraph Avenue, Chabon lovingly creates a global grounded in pop culture—Kung Fu, ’70s Blaxploitation motion pictures, vinyl LPs, jazz and soul music—and grants a bravura epic of friendship, race, and mystery histories.
