Some Favorite Writers: Jonathan Lethem
Did I say I love this book? Well, OK then, I love this book... —Los Angeles Times

His newest volume, The Ecstasy of Influence, is a constellation of provocative previously published pieces and new essays that shed light on an array of topics, from sex in cinema to drugs, graffiti, Bob Dylan, cyberculture, 9/11, book touring, and Marlon Brando, as well as on his literary models and contemporaries.
