Workshop 35: Jonathan Lethem

Jonathan Lethem is the best-selling author of Gun, with Occasional Music, Fortress of Solitude, and other novels, including the Naitonal Book Critics’ Circle award-winning Motherless Brooklyn. He’s known for reanimating and remixing genres – hard-boiled crime novels, post-apocalyptic science fiction, superhero comics and even technicolor westerns. His most recent novel is called A Gambler’s Anatomy. It’s about a high-stakes competitive backgammon player and con artist – a character who, like Lethem, was raised in the bohemian Brooklyn of the 1970s.
