really liked it

The ins and outs . . . the growing up together and growing apart (and together and apart again), of two motherless best friends in 60’s/70’s Brooklyn, one white, one black. A story of struggling to fit in, growing into who you are, and understanding how your family makes you who you are. Lethem is an author who hears popular music more than just as a fan, and understands how it informs and shapes the lives of some . . . maybe the best novel about popular music that isn’t about popular music at all.
