An Eagerly Anticipated Epic From Michael Chabon

Michael Chabon fans rejoice!  The author's first novel in five years, Telegraph Avenue, has arrived.  Set in California in the summer of 2004, the book focuses on two families, Jewish and black, and two businesses — one a falling-down vinyl shop endangered by a huge chain store about to open, the other a midwife business that grew out of black culture now catering primarily to whites.  The characters, much like the setting, find themselves in a rough state of transition in this moving story about race and class, parenting and marriage.
