Telegraph avenue : a novel

In this novel the author takes us to Telegraph Avenue. It is a story that explores the profoundly intertwined lives of two Oakland, California families, one black and one white. Here he creates a world grounded in pop culture: Kung Fu, 1970s Blaxploitation films, vinyl LPs, jazz and soul music, and an epic of friendship, race, and secret histories. Longtime band mates Archy and Nat preside over Brokeland Records, a used-record emporium. All is well until a former NFL quarterback, one of the country's richest African Americans, decides to build his latest Dogpile megastore on nearby Telegraph Avenue. Not only could this spell doom for the little shop and its cross-race, cross-class dream, but it opens up past history regarding Archy's untethered dad and a Black Panther-era crime.

  • "La 4ème de couverture indique : 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."
  • "The new novel from Michael Chabon, his first in 5 years, is a lovingly painted pop-culture epic. One street, two families. As the summer of 2004 draws to a close, Archy Stallings and Nat Jaffe are still hanging in there, longtime friends, band mates and co-regents of Brokeland Records. Their wives, Gwen Shanks and Aviva Roth-Jaffe, are the Berkeley Birth Partners, a pair of semi-legendary nurse midwives. When ex-NFL quarterback Gibson Goode announces plans to go forward with the construction of his latest Dogpile megastore on Telegraph Avenue, Nat and Archy fear the worst for their vulnerable little enterprise. But behind Goode's announcement a nefarious story lurks. As their husbands struggle to mount a defence, Aviva and Gwen also find themselves caught up in a professional struggle that tests the limits of their friendship. And simultaneously, into their already tangled lives, comes Titus Joyner, the teenaged son Archy has never acknowledged. An intimate epic set to the funky beat of classic vinyl soul-jazz and pulsing with a virtuosic, pyrotechnical style all of its own, Telegraph Avenue is Michael Chabon's most dazzling book yet."@en

  • ""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."--Book cover."
  • "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."
  • "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."@en
