Telegraph Avenue (Hardcover)
|Author: Michael Chabon|
|"New York Times"-bestselling, Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist Chabon goes to Telegraph Avenue in a big-hearted novel that explores the lives of two Oakland, California families, one black and one white, and the pop culture that surrounds them.|
Chabon wrote his first short story (heavily influenced by the Sherlock Holmes stories) when he was 10. He graduated from the University of Pittsburgh, then studied at the University of California-Irvine writer's program; his first novel, THE MYSTERIES OF PITTSBURGH--his M.F.A. thesis--was published when he was 24.
