The Fortress of Solitude by Jonathan Lethem
The Fortress of Solitude

FS lover, January 1, 2010

The first time I read this book I wolfed it down. Finally a meaty, beautifully-written work. Finally, a book worth talking about when friends ask what I have been reading lately. Finally, a book that I can reach for when I need a passage to illustrate a point or inspire a memory. And finally, a book that takes on race issues in an Obama-worthy way (but written before most of us had even heard of Barack).
When friends love it as much as I do, I feel like they get some part of me that I struggle to describe.
