Jonathan Lethem joins Kate, Medaya, and Eric to discuss the publication of his collection of essays, reviews, and commentaries, More Alive and Less Lonely, which serves as a fine description of the free-ranging dialogue that ensues. The great subjects of life are tackled: how to contend with the impact of having children on your daily regimen of reading, New York versus California, fiction versus criticism, et cetera. Also, Dana Spiotta returns to recommend Chanelle Benz’s The Man Who Shot Out My Eye is Dead.
