From the funked-up, messed-up Brooklyn of the 1970s to the present day, this stunning novel spans thirty years in the life of two best friends, Dylan and Mingus, their families and an entire neighbourhood. From their stories come the history of soul music, of graffiti art, of comic books, of experimented film and 'rock writing'. With a cast of more than a hundred characters and more than fifty speaking parts, this is a touching and intimate novel of an epic scale.

Industry Reviews

"'Jonathan Lethem's novel is the best New York City novel of the past 10 or 15 years... Probably the one American novel this year you absolutely must read.' Rick Moody; 'One of those rare books that felt as though it had to be written.' Nick Hornby; 'A phenomenal book, with the pace of Scorsese or Spike Lee.' Uncut"
