Authors@Google: Video Talks From the Epicenter of the Universe

More good news for book fans: Google has launched a new collection of videos called Authors@Google. The videos feature talks by authors, writing across many genres (literary fiction to science fiction, sociology to technology, politics to business) who have made recent visits to Google campuses.You can access the talks via a new homepage, or just go immediately to the video archive itself. And there, you’ll find talks by Martin Amis (House of Meetings) and Jonathan Lethem (You Don’t Love Me Yet: A Novel), but also ones by Strobe Talbott, Bob & Lee Woodruff, Senator Hillary Clinton, and Carly Fiorina.To get a better feel for Authors@Google, we’ve included a clip below from Jonathan Lethem, who wrote Motherless Brooklyn, a favorite of mine that offers a truly unique, literary take on the traditional detective novel, and which always leaves me feeling a bit homesick for Brooklyn.
