Lethem's Next

Jonathan Lethem Talks About His New Novel

CBR has an interview with Jonathan Lethem discussing his enjoyable Omega Unknown comic book that concluded this past week. At the end of the interview, Lethem briefly spoke about his next novel:

It is coming together, and it should be published in the fall of 2009. It still doesn't have a title, but I can tell you, it's set on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, it's strongly influenced by Saul Bellow, Philip K. Dick, Charles Finney and Hitchcock's 'Vertigo' and it concerns a circle of friends including a faded child-star actor, a cultural critic, a hack ghost-writer of autobiographies, and a city official. And it's long and strange.

Sounds readable!
