Synopsis: Seven dark, surreal stories by the award-winning author of Gun, with Occasional Music and Amnesia Moon include the tale of a couple who collects virtual reality copies of their former lovers.
Review: Jonathan Lethem continues his unique brand of storytelling with this collection of seven short works. There is no mistaking his range or ability as he writes skillfully about subjects as various as Hell and the NBA. As usual, reading Lethem is a bit like staring at an upside-down Picasso in black light with 3-D glasses--intensely interesting, often confusing, rampantly inventive and never dull. The underpinning of this book is not a theme or an idea but rather Lethem's pure, unleashed talent and a mind that can come up with ideas that will jolt even seasoned SF readers.
