Description

Vox's Constance Grady talks with writer Jonathan Lethem about his 2003 work The Fortress of Solitude in this recording from a live Vox Book Club event. They discuss the prescient and still-relevant themes of the novel — like the issues of appropriation in art, gentrification, and superheroes, how Lethem approaches "realism" in his writing, and the role of music and comics in both his own life and the lives of his characters.

Vox Conversations will be on summer break the week of July 4th, and will return on Monday, July 11th.

Host: Constance Grady (@constancegrady), staff writer, Vox

Guests: Jonathan Lethem, author
