It’s not too late to pick up or re-read a copy of Chronic City for our first ever PWHNY summer book club. We’ll run some extended posts and host discussion a couple weeks from now.

In the meantime, here’s another link to a piece I found useful the first time I read the novel. It’s a WSJ piece by Alexandra Alter about the novel’s Upper East Side setting — and the idea of Lethem as a “Brooklyn” writer taking on Manhattan. Enjoy.
