3 Standout Picks for September in Times Union

Jonathan Lethem, who visits us on 9/11, was named one of three standout events for September by the Times Union arts and entertainment team of Amy Biancolli, Steve Barnes and Michael Janairo.

Amy Biancolli says:

Jonathan Lethem writes weird stuff. Dense, descriptive, laced with mystery and quirk, his novels crisscross a wild expanse of genres. Sometimes these genres are obvious: His 1994 debut, "Gun, with Occasional Music," is a wickedly readable gumshoe novel peopled with hyper-evolved animals. (One of the thugs is a kangaroo.)
