Note to Jonathan Lethem
Stories about dinner parties and how ironic and aloof the participants are from their decadent proceedings, are dull, dull, dull, regardless of how well they are written. And the prose in chapter two of Chronic City is excellent--it's fun, interesting, and insightful-- but it's still boring. I only hope it fits into place with the rest of the novel.
