August's Pick: Motherless Brooklyn

Now that I have some time on my hands, it is time for another book club selection. I have chosen Motherless Brooklyn by Jonathan Lethem. I have read a few things by Lethem recently, notably Fear of Music, his contribution to the 33 1/3 series on iconic albums. It is a master work, required reading for anyone who has claimed to be a Talking Heads fan. I have also read The Ecstasy of Influence, a large collection of his essays and shorter pieces. Again, excellent: engaging, personal, poignant, effective. I am excited to read Motherless Brooklyn.
