Event

Brooklyn By the Book presents Jonathan Lethem
IN CONVERSATION WITH BEN LERNER

Bruno Alexander, the protagonist of Jonathan Lethem's newest novel, A Gambler's Anatomy, is a backgammon hustler who travels the world winning large sums of money from amateur whales until he runs into a troubling run of bad luck in Singapore. Then, in Berlin, he develops a tumorous blot that distorts his vision so he has to look at the board sideways. He flies to Berkeley, despite a vow never to return there, for experimental surgery that might save his life. Amidst the patchouli flashbacks and anarchist gambits of the local scene, Bruno confronts an existential enigma: Is the gambler being played by life?

This program will take place at Congregation Beth Elohim. General admission is $10; CBE/BPL-member admission is $7. Tickets may be used for a $7 discount on (1) copy of "A Gambler's Anatomy" on the night of the program. Book Bundles come with free admission. All books available for pickup or purchase at the program.

Please print tickets or have them available on your mobile device for faster admission. Doors at 7:30pm.

Brooklyn By the Book is a collaboration between the Brooklyn Public Library, Community Bookstore, and Congregation Beth Elohim.
