Michiko Kakutani, New York Times.
The Author transports us to Telegraph Avenue in Berkeley, California, via an exciting novel that explores the intertwined lives of two Oakland families: one black and the other white. Chabon creates a world grounded in pop culture involving jazz and soul music (on vinyl LPs, of course--hence the cover design) and establishes a new spin on interracial friendships and their hidden histories.
