As the summer of 2004 draws to a close, Archy Stallings and Nat Jaffe are still hanging in there, long-time friends, bandmates and co-regents of Brokeland Records, a kingdom of used vinyl located in the sketchy yet freewheeling borderlands of Berkeley and Oakland. Archy and his wife, Gwen, are expecting their first baby; Nat and Aviva have a teenaged son, Julius. Cranky, flawed and loving each other with all the fierceness we’ve come to expect of Chabon characters, Archy and Nat have worked to construct lives and livelihoods that have a groove, looking to connect across barriers of race and class, and clinging to a sense of order and security through their stubbornly old-school ways. When ex-NFL quarterback Gibson Goode, the fourth-richest black man in America, announces plans to construct his latest Dogpile megastore on a nearby neglected stretch of Telegraph Avenue, Nat and Archy fear it means certain doom for their vulnerable little enterprise. What they don’t know is that Goode’s announcement marks the climax of a decades-old secret history encompassing a forgotten crime of the Black Panther era, the tragedy of Archy’s own deadbeat father—a long faded Blaxploitation star—and the perpetual shining failure of American optimism about race.

The New York Times bestseller following a big-hearted, exhilarating novel exploring the profoundly intertwined lives of two Oakland families. “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 of Kavalier & 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. As the summer of 2004 draws to a close, Archy Stallings and Nat Jaffe are still hanging in there—longtime friends, bandmates, and coregents of Brokeland Records, a kingdom of used vinyl located in the borderlands of Berkeley and Oakland. Their wives, Gwen Shanks and Aviva Roth-Jaffe, are the Berkeley Birth Partners, a pair of semilegendary midwives who have welcomed more than a thousand newly minted citizens into the dented utopia at whose heart-half tavern, half temple-stands Brokeland. When ex-NFL quarterback Gibson Goode, the fifth-richest black man in America, announces plans to build his latest Dogpile megastore on a nearby stretch of Telegraph Avenue, Nat and Archy fear it means certain doom for their vulnerable little enterprise. Meanwhile, Aviva and Gwen also find themselves caught up in a battle for their professional existence, one that tests the limits of their friendship. Adding another layer of complication to the couples’ already tangled lives is the surprise appearance of Titus Joyner, the teenage son Archy has never acknowledged and the love of 15-year-old Julius Jaffe’s life.

La nueva novela del ganador del Premio Pulizter por Las asombrosas aventuras de Kavalier & Clay. 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, unas 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.

Brokeland Records scheint seltsam aus der Zeit gefallen: Menschen mit Muße und Geschmack treffen sich hier, um über Musik und Jazzlegenden zu fabulieren. Zu den ständigen Gästen gehört neben Jazzmusikern auch Chandler Flowers, Bestattungsunternehmer und Ratsmitglied. Eigentlich müsste er auf Nats und Archys Seite stehen, doch warum setzt er sich für sie nicht ein, was hat die Football-Legende Goode gegen ihn in der Hand? Als wäre die Bedrohung der Existenz nicht schon genug, bekommt Archy auch noch privaten Ärger. Seine schwangere Frau Gwen findet heraus, dass er fremdgeht, sein abgehalfterter Vater will mal wieder Geld, und dann taucht auch noch ein Junge auf, der sein unehelicher Sohn sein könnte. Die resolute Gwen wiederum kämpft nach einer missglückten Hausgeburt, die sie mit Nats Frau Aviva begleitet hat, gegen arrogante Ärzte, hysterische Väter und überhaupt gegen die Umstände. Ihren Mann setzt sie kurzerhand vor die Tür. Doch wie soll es weitergehen auf der Telegraph Avenue? Ein Roman, der sich einreiht in die großen Werke der amerikanischen Gegenwartsliteratur, eine Komposition, in der der Jazz und Blues mitschwingt, ein großes Werk des Pulitzer-Preisträgers Michael Chabon.

Sur Telegraph Avenue, à Oakland, Californie, subsiste un petit paradis des vinyles de collection, Brokeland. Refuge de toute une faune d'habitués et de cinglés de rythmes afro-américains, il est tenu par Archy Stallings et Nat Jaffe, deux amis de longue date. Mais le projet d'implantation d'un gigantesque magasin de disques menace son existence. Et les imbroglios commencent, avec leur effet domino. Car c'est bien plus que la disparition de Brokeland qui est en jeu. C'est une histoire d'amitiés, de fidélité au passé et d'identité culturelle pour laquelle se mobilisent, s'opposent ou s'allient les voyous et les musiciens du quartier, les hommes de la municipalité, mais aussi les femmes de Nat et d'Archy, deux ados fans de Tarantino, une vieille star de la blaxploitation et une aïeule chinoise ceinture noire de kung-fu.
