Pulitzer Prize-winner Michael Chabon will be at Copperfield’s Books tonight to discuss his latest book, Telegraph Avenue, a novel about two friends who own a record store whose future is being threatened by a big-box development.
The book has described as “NorCal Middlemarch set to the funky beat of classic vinyl soul-jazz and pulsing with a virtuosic, pyrotechnical style all its own.”
While protagonists Archy Stallings and Nat Jaffe agonize over what the megastore, the Dog Pile, means for their livelihood, their wives, who run a successful midwife practice, get tangled up in a difficult birth that tests their reputation as well as friendship.
Copperfield’s calls Telegraph Avenue 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.”
Starts at 7pm at Copperfield’s Books in Petaluma. 140 Kentucky Street.
