Lethem's vision of New York can approach the Swiftian.
proves both funny and frightening. Lethem's vision of New York can approach the Swiftian. It is impressively observant in its detail and scourging in its mocking satire.
In Lethem’s earliest work the tricks and extravagances and gymnastic prose sometimes seemed arch or mannered - merely clever - but they have grown steadily more confident, and here they serve the higher purpose of flinging Manhattan onto the page in all its manic energy. When style and subject merge, tics recede into invisibility. The turbocharged plot of Chronic City is too intricate and seamless, and also too odd, to summarize easily.

A New York Times Book Review Best Book of the Year.A searing and wildly entertaining love letter to New York City from the bestselling author of Motherless Brooklyn and Fortress of Solitude. 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 fiancée, 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.
