Jonathan Lethem is well-known for his own writing; books like A Gambler's Anatomy and Motherless Brooklyn.
But he also has a keen eye for the work of other writers. And we get to see his writing about their writing in a book of critical essays by Lethem called More Alive and Less Lonely.
Christopher Boucher edited the collection.
Jonathan Lethem joins us to talk about his work and inspirations, and what he enjoys in the work of other writers.
