    As the summer of 2004 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, a pair of semi-legendary midwives who have welcomed, between them, more than a thousand newly minted citizens into the dented utopia at whose heart - half tavern, half temple - stands Brokeland Records.

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of Telegraph Avenue to be better than the print version?

    Narrator had soul, book has ink only.


    What did you like best about this story?

    multi-cultural plot lines woven between 3 generations.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When the zeppelin was un-leashed.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    nostalgic for the 1970's


    Any additional comments?

    Author did a nice job of describing attitudes during the 1970's. I'll bet most of the nostalgic facts were accurate. The vintage cars seemed to be true to form.
