Lakeview Book Club: Telegraph Avenue by Michael Chabon

May 21, 2013 Lakeview Book Club Selection: Telegraph Avenue by Michael Chabon

Michael Chabon's new work is a best selling, 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.

Share your Oakland memories of the era and compare them to the world Chabon shows us!

The Lakeview Book Club is friendly and open to new members! See you there!
