Staff Recommendation: Chronic City

Lethem's intelligent satire confuses reality with delusion, affection with deception, and comedy with tragedy. Meet Chase, a former child star, fiance of a space-stranded astronaut, and Perkus, a pot-smoking, paranoid cultural critic. They are adrift in Manhattan, where an escaped tiger causes buildings to collapse & the homeless find refuge in a luxury residence for dogs.
