Free Enhanced eBook Sampler from Michael Chabon

HarperCollins has released an enhanced eBook sampler of Michael Chabon’s new novel Telegraph Avenue. The excerpt is part of the enhanced eBook edition that the publisher will release on September 11th.

You can download the free sampler or check out an online version of the enhanced eBook sampler at this link.

AppNewser has more: “The enhanced edition includes an original video of Chabon talking about the book, a theme song for the book performed by The Wakanda Philharmonic Orchestra, and four extended excerpts of the audiobook with performances by Clarke Peters, the actor who stars in The Wire and Treme.”

Here is an excerpt from the book:

The garbage bag flew off, revealing the riot gun that Chan had checked out that afternoon from the basement arsenal of a Panther safe house in East Oakland. There was a gust of horns, palaver, and thump, and then the door breathed shut behind Chan. The garbage bag caught on a thermal hook and spun in the air, teased and tugged by unseen hands. Luther lowered the volume on the in-dash eight-track.
