Jonathan Lethem signs his latest novel on Tuesday Sept 21st at 7PM.
The bestselling and beloved author of Motherless Brooklyn, The Fortress of Solitude, and Omega the Unknown delivers a searing love letter to the city that has inspired his finest work.
Chase Insteadman, former child television star, has a new role in life—permanent guest on the Upper East Side dinner party circuit, where he is consigned to talk about his astronaut fiancÃ©e, Janice Trumbull, who is trapped on a circling Space Station. A chance encounter collides Chase with Perkus Tooth, a wily pop culture guru with a vicious conspiratorial streak and the best marijuana in town. Despite their disparate backgrounds and trajectories Chase and Perkus discover they have a lot in common, including a cast of friends from all walks of life in Manhattan. Together and separately they attempt to define the indefinable, and enter into a quest for the most elusive of things: truth and authenticity in a city where everything has a price.

Jonathan Lethem – Chronic City
Thursday, October 22 at 6pm
Coolidge Corner Theatre, $5
The MacArthur Fellow behind Motherless Brooklyn, The Fortress of Solitude and Omega the Unknown has written another exquisitely haunting novel. Chronic City follows the life of a former child star as it intersects with those of an astronaut, a ghostwriter, and a genius critic. What The Fortress of Solitude did for Gowanus, Chronic City does for the island of Manhattan.
