20.09.2007 - Michael Chabon

Michael Chabon won the Pulitzer Prize for his novel The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay. He lives in Berkely, California and is married to author Ayelet Waldman. Chabon has been our guest once before, when he visited us at BorderKitchen to talk about his book The Yiddish Policemen’s Union, about a mind experiment in the fictional American Jewish state Alaska. At Crossing Border he will be our guest once again. Chabon’s new book conjures up a lot of nostalgia, love and music, written as only a great and original author can. Telegraph Avenue tells of the record store Brokeland Records which has to be saved from destruction, and about the two friends that run it and their families.
