Gosh, I'd forgotten all about this controversy, but suppose I'll revisit it when I get to The Ecstacy of Influence
, about which I've heard great things and which is awaiting my completion of Chronic City
. I don't much care for the latter, but this is my second attempt at it, and I'm going to polish it off. I'm nearly finished with, although I lost interest in the story about a third of the way through the novel.
But the reason I came here tonight is to highlight Lethem's story
in the latest New Yorker. The title concerns me, but I guess I'll dive in and see what the author has come up with.
EDIT: Oh, and one other thing related to previous posts in this thread. I was going to post in the "Zona" thread that I received my copy today of Geoff Dyer's latest book, but then I decided to wait until I had something to say about the book, until I'd read some of it. The only thing I've read so far is the back of the dust jacket, which consists only of a laudatory quote about Dyer's other books. And from whose work is that quote pulled? From a New Yorker article by ... James Wood!
