Pulitzer Prize-winning writer Michael Chabon has a knack for telling big, impactful stories through pop culture. Chabon's novel The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay used the history and tropes of comics; The Final Solution wrapped a tale around the mysteries of Sherlock Holmes.
Now, with his latest effort, Telegraph Avenue, the author delves inside the world of the record shop. Not surprisingly, the book is full of music. Chabon talks all about Telegraph Avenue's soul-jazz soundtrack, and why he loves prog rock.
