Dissident Gardens

Dissident Gardens - Jonathan Lethem Put this one on your to-read list!

Lethem creates a masterful portrait of communist Queens, pre-gentrified Brooklyn, and dirty Manhattan in this beautiful homage to the characters who bring the city to life. Good or bad, the population of his homeland is always determined to make the world different, and their struggles, starting at the first World War, continue unabated into the present day. This is the literary event of the year, and, some might argue, of Lethem's career.
