Called "one of the most celebrated writers of his generation" by The Virginia Quarterly Review, Michael Chabon is at the height of his powers. An intimate epic, a NorCal "Middlemarch" set to the funky beat of classic vinyl soul-jazz and pulsing with a virtuosic, pyrotechnical style all its own, Telegraph Avenue (Harper, $27.99) is the great American novel we've been waiting for. Generous, imaginative, funny, moving, thrilling, humane, triumphant, it is Michael Chabon's most dazzling book yet.
