Story | Sep 28, 2012 | 3:20 PMMichael Chabon's best-selling new novel, “Telegraph Avenue,” is set in and around Brokeland Records, a used-vinyl record store on the border between Oakland and Berkeley, Calif., where Chabon has lived since the late 1990s. The story follows the store's co-owners, band mates Archy Stallings (the son of Luther Stallings, a former star of Blaxploitation martial-arts movies) and Nat Jaffe, as they struggle to keep Brokeland going in the face of competition from a new megastore owned by Gibson Goode, a former NFL quarterback who's now “the fifth-richest black man in America.” In their orbit are their spouses, Gwen and Aviva, both professional midwives; Nat and Aviva's gay son Julius; and his love interest, Titus Joyner, who turns out to be Archy's long-unacknowledged teenage son.
