Lethem fulfills the promise of his earlier, critically acclaimed novels with the gritty and uproarious tale of a Brooklyn P.I. with problems: a dead boss, women trouble, and an uncontrollable case of Tourette's syndrome.
At once gripping, mournful, touching and comic...one of the greatest feats of first-person narration in recent American fiction. Philip Marlowe would blush. And tip his fedora.
