Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“[Letham is] an author to be reckoned with…A social critic, a sardonic satirist like the Walker Percy of Love in the Ruins. But with Amnesia Moon, Lethem slips out of the shadow of his predecessors to deliver a droll, downbeat vision that is both original and persuasive.” Newsweek
“At its heart, this novel remains a simple story—the search for identity, the search for family—but Lethem uses it successfully as a springboard for both a commentary on American culture and a convincing portrait of his main character.” Publishers Weekly
“A hip, updated conflation of Harlan Ellison’s A Boy and His Dog and Jim Thompson’s The Alcoholics. Jonathan Lethem escorts us down an impossibly post-terminal Route 66, kicking and screaming and loving every minute of it.” Barry Gifford, author of Wild at Heart
