Jonathan Lethem Chronic City

Jonathan Lethem, the acclaimed author of Motherless Brooklyn and The Fortress of Solitude, reads from and discusses his new book Chronic City, a gorgeous, searing portrayal of Manhattanites wrapped in their own delusions, desires, and lies. Like Manhattan itself, Lethem’s newest masterpiece is beautiful and tawdry, tragic and forgiving, devastating and antic, a stand-in for the whole world and a place utterly unique.

($27.95) Doubleday ISBN #978-0-385-51863-5. You can visit Jonathan Lethem’s official web site as well.
