Jonathan Lethem, celebrated for his explorations of American culture and the New York City landscape, received the National Book Critics Circle Award for his novel Motherless Brooklyn (1999), a New York Times Best Seller. His new novel is Dissident Gardens, the story of a family of American radicals living in Sunnyside, Queens, and Greenwich Village during much of the last century, as they participate in the home-grown Communism of the 1930s up through the Occupy Wall Street movement of more recent days. Other books by Lethem include Chronic City (2009) and The Fortress of Solitude (2003), a New York Times Best Seller and "Editor's Choice." Lethem received a 2005 MacArthur Foundation Fellowship.
