Michael Chabon's new novel is one of the most anticipated titles of the fall season, and this superb production rewards all expectations. Set in 2004 in an interracial neighborhood in Oakland, California, the story is a narrative of voices, generations, genders, and the ambience of a particular place. Clarke Peters, best known for his performance in "The Wire," evokes the spirit and sensibility of the place as well its many diverse characters. Chabon is one of the few white writers who has a convincing ear for ethnic dialogue. He and Peters perform a magic that is something far more than mimicry. D.A.W.
