A new novel is set here in part, and it’s by the acclaimed Jonathan Lethem, who lives in Claremont. What more inducement did I need to write about it? “The Feral Detective,” and Lethem himself, are the subject of Wednesday’s column.
You can meet him at his Nov. 7 launch party in Claremont — that is, if you’re not attending my author talk the same evening in the same town. Unfortunate timing, that.
