Jonathan Lethem: Live Career Retrospective, hosted by Richard Wolinsky.
On March 3, 2016, Richard Wolinsky had a chance to sit down with author Jonathan Lethem in front of a Berkeley audience as a benefit for KPFA. Jonathan is the author of several novels, including Motherless Brooklyn, Fortress of Solitude, Chronic City and most recently Dissident Gardens, along with short story collections and a book of essays, The Ecstasy of Influence. The event was intended as a career retrospective; the first 45 minutes devoted to prepared questions, followed by a period of questions from the audience, with follow-ups.
Jonathan’s collection, Lucky Alan and Other Stories, had just come out in trade paperback.His newest novel, A Gambler’s Anatomy has a release date of October 16, 2016. Special thanks to Bob Baldock, who creates these events, and Jane Heaven, who records them.
A shorter version of this interview airs on Arts-Waves on October 3, 2016.
