Jonathan Lethem - The Feral Detective: A Novel

Upcoming Event
Tuesday, November 13, 2018 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

As endearingly quirky as it is masterfully crafted and finely observed, Lethem’s first detective novel since Motherless Brooklyn follows an unlikely pair as they venture into hostile desert country in search of a missing woman. Charles Heist--who has numerous pets and keeps an opossum in a desk drawer—is the eponymous detective. Tough to read and something of a loner, he agrees to help the sarcastic, talkative Phoebe find her friend’s daughter. As the two travel through California’s Inland Empire, an enclave of people living off the grid, their case becomes more complicated as Charles and Phoebe get caught between two warring camps.
