Description
(New York Times Top Ten Book of 2009) The author of the National Book Critics Circle Award winner Motherless Brooklyn and The Fortress of Solitude returns with this searing, strangely beautiful novel—a New York Times Best Book of the Year—portraying Manhattanites wrapped in their own delusions, desires, and lies. Former child star Chase Insteadman lives off residuals from his beloved sitcom Martyr & Pesty, while his childhood sweetheart floats high above, trapped in the International Space Station. Into Chase's cloistered Upper East Side life enters wall-eyed pop culture critic Perkus Tooth, who draws him into another, more paranoid Manhattan. As Lethem himself described it, the book is "set on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, it's 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. And it's long and strange."
