Sex and Politics in Sunnyside Gardens: Jonathan Lethem Gets ‘Real’

Added on by Andrew Marzoni.

I wrote this. Here is my favorite sentence:

In arguing that the political is also personal, Mr. Lethem seems to suggest that even if we are not, in 2013, boycotting German-made liverwurst or marching the Pentagon, we are at the very least receiving handjobs from blonde-dreadlocked neo-hippies in rental cars, as Sergius does in the novel’s final chapter.
