posted: August 20, 2012
Best selling author Michael Chabon is the subject of a Q&A in the latest issue of Mother Jones. He won a Pulitzer for "The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay. His latest novel, "Telegraph Avenue" set in Oakland, deals with two owners of a vintage-vinyl record shop (one black, one white) threatened by a megastore. Thanks to Tim Luddy for the assignment.

Lovely and amazing, Joe. Love that handwriting, and admire your honesty (or is that about Chabon) ?
