Jonathan Lethem (born 1964) is an American "genre-bending" novelist, essayist, and short story writer. He has won major awards such as the National Book Critics Circle Award and a MacArthur Fellowship.
According to the author, Chronic City is "strongly influenced by Saul Bellow, Philip K. Dick, Charles Finney and Hitchcock’s Vertigo, and it concerns a circle of friends including a faded child-star actor, a cultural critic, a hack ghost-writer of autobiographies, and a city official."
SUPERIOR CONDITION: Tight, bright, very clean in comparable dust jacket (unclipped) with minute rubbing to the head and foot of the dj's spine. No previous owner or remainder marks.
