Afternoon Bites: Christgau on Lethem, Sarah Glidden on Occupy Miami, Bittman on Roth, and more

“At 47, Lethem is 11 years older than Mailer was in 1959, so he’s had time to get more reading in. But that’s hardly the biggest advantage of an omnivore who devoured a book a day on the subway in high school and has spent 15 years working in bookstores…” Robert Christgau reviews Jonathan Lethem’s nonfiction collection The Ecstasy of Influence.
