Overview

A finales del verano de 2004, Archy Stalling y Nat Jaffe son dos amigos que continúan viviendo a duras penas de su negocio, Brokeland Records, un paraíso de vinilos de segunda mano localizado en un área indefinida entre Berkeley y Oakland. Sus esposas, Gwen Shanks y Aviva Roth-Jaffe, son las Comadronas Asociadas de Berkeley, una comadronas casi legendarias que han dado la bienvenida a miles de recién nacidos a la comunidad, en cuyo corazón se erige Brokeland Records.

Cuando el ex jugador de fútbol americano Gibson Goode anuncia su intención de construir una macrotienda Dogpile a tan solo dos manzanas de su establecimiento, Nat y Archy temen por el futuro de su pequeño negocio. Mientras tanto Aviva y Gwen se encuentran en medio de una batalla legal por su existencia profesional que pone a prueba los límites de su amistad. Y para añadir un poco más de complicación a sus vidas, aparece por sorpresa Titus Joyner, un adolescente de catorce años que asegura ser el hijo de Archy, y que es el amor de Julius, el hijo quinceañero de Nat.

Imaginativa, divertida, conmovedora, emocionante, humana, triunfal, Telegraph Avenue es la novela  más deslumbrante Michael Chabon hasta la fecha. ENGLISH DESCRIPTION "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 ofKavalier & 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.
