Following on the heels of his i New York Times i bestselling novel i Telegraph Avenue i Pulitzer Prize winning author Michael Chabon delivers another literary masterpiece a novel of truth and lies family legends and existential adventure and the forces that work to destroy us br br In fresh from the publication of his first novel i The Mysteries of Pittsburgh i Michael Chabon traveled to his mother s home in Oakland California to visit his terminally ill grandfather Tongue loosened by powerful painkillers memory stirred by the imminence of death Chabon s grandfather shared recollections and told stories the younger man had never heard before uncovering bits and pieces of a history long buried and forgotten That dreamlike week of revelations forms the basis for the novel i Moonglow i the latest feat of legerdemain in the ongoing magic act that is the art of Michael Chabon br br i Moonglow i unfolds as the deathbed confession made to his grandson of a man the narrator refers to only as my grandfather It is a tale of madness of war and adventure of sex and desire and ordinary love of existential doubt and model rocketry of the shining aspirations and demonic underpinnings of American technological accomplishment at mid century and above all of the destructive impact and the creative power of the keeping of secrets and the telling of lies A gripping poignant tragicomic scrupulously researched and wholly imaginary transcript of a life that spanned the dark heart of the twentieth century i Moonglow i is also a tour de force of speculative history in which Chabon attempts to reconstruct the mysterious origins and fate of Chabon Scientific Co an authentic mail order novelty company whose ads for scale models of human skeletons combustion engines and space rockets were once a fixture in the back pages of Esquire Popular Mechanics and Boy s Life Along the way Chabon devises and reveals in bits and pieces whose hallucinatory intensity is matched only by their comic vigor and the radiant moonglow of his prose a secret history of his own imagination br br From the Jewish slums of prewar South Philadelphia to the invasion of Germany from a Florida retirement village to the penal utopia of New York s Wallkill Prison from the heyday of the space program to the twilight of the American Century i Moonglow i collapses an era into a single life and a lifetime into a single week A lie that tells the truth a work of fictional non fiction an autobiography wrapped in a novel disguised as a memoir i Moonglow i is Chabon at his most daring his most moving his most Chabonesque, Telegraph Avenue 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 br br As the summer of draws to a close Archy Stallings and Nat Jaffe are still hanging in there longtime friends bandmates and co regents of Brokeland Records a kingdom of used vinyl located in the borderlands of Berkeley and Oakland Their wives Gwen Shanks and Aviva Roth Jaffe are the Berkeley Birth Partners two semi legendary midwives who have welcomed more than a thousand newly minted citizens into the dented utopia at whose heart half tavern half temple stands Brokeland br br When ex NFL quarterback Gibson Goode the fifth richest black man in America announces plans to build his latest Dogpile megastore on a nearby stretch of Telegraph Avenue Nat and Archy fear it means certain doom for their vulnerable little enterprise Meanwhile Aviva and Gwen also find themselves caught up in a battle for their professional existence one that tests the limits of their friendship Adding another layer of complication to the couples already tangled lives is the surprise appearance of Titus Joyner the teenage son Archy has never acknowledged and the love of fifteen year old Julius Jaffe s life br br 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 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, The enthralling debut from bestselling novelist Michael Chabon is a penetrating narrative of complex friendships father son conflicts and the awakening of a young man s sexual identity Chabon masterfully renders the funny tender and captivating first person narrative of Art Bechstein whose confusion and heartache echo the tones of literary forebears like i The Catcher in the Rye i s Holden Caulfield and i The Great Gatsby i s Nick Carraway, Joe Kavalier a young Jewish artist who has also been trained in the art of Houdini esque escape has just smuggled himself out of Nazi invaded Prague and landed in New York City His Brooklyn cousin Sammy Clay is looking for a partner to create heroes stories and art for the latest novelty to hit America the comic book Drawing on their own fears and dreams Kavalier and Clay create the Escapist the Monitor and Luna Moth inspired by the beautiful Rosa Saks who will become linked by powerful ties to both men With exhilarating style and grace Michael Chabon tells an unforgettable story about American romance and possibility
