The disappointment artist and other essays
Jonathan Lethem explores the nature of cultural obsession with examples as diverse as western films, comic books, the music of Talking Heads and Pink Floyd, and the New York City subway. Along the way, he shows how each of these 'voyages out from himself' have led him home - home to his father's life as a painter, and to the source of his beginnings as a writer. It's a series of windows onto the collisions of art, landscape, and personal history that formed Lethem's perspective on life.
