Exchange Exemplar: Jonathan Lethem

It's a New York Mets reference.

No word on whether Jonathan Lethem was among the first people in line for the latest Star Wars movie.  But he was a big fan of the first one (first one made, that is), seeing the 1977 classic 21 times. 

It was part of his escape into fictional characters, a process he continues in his own novels, like Motherless Brooklyn and Dissident Gardens

Lethem visited a few years back to talk about More Alive and Less Lonely, his writing that muses on the workings of the minds of other writers.  We replay the interview here.
