Jonathan Lethem on Art & The Digital Future

Jonathan Lethem, the writer behind Moth­er­less Brook­lyn (one of my faves) and Fortress of Soli­tude, has a new book out, Chron­ic City. Above, he talks about the sur­re­al qual­i­ty of his work, the future of dig­i­tal books, and the per­son­al guide­lines that deter­mine what he writes, and won’t write. With­in this last point, you will find a good les­son for all of us. Find your unique tal­ent, ded­i­cate your­self to it, avoid the work com­mon­ly done by oth­ers, and you can achieve some­thing notable and worth­while.
