Jonathan Lethem

Hardcover / Ecco 2020 / 32o pages / ISBN 978-0062938787


"The Arrest is a novel that defies description in the best possible way, which makes it quintessentially a work of Jonathan Lethem’s at his most sublime. It’s an organic tale of the apocalypse, a Hollywood parable, and a fable of survival and surrender. The prose crackles, the jokes land hard and fast, and the story’s heart is sensationally large. Spectacularly imaginative but grounded in humanity and hope—The Arrest is a perfect novel for this moment and future ones." (Ivy Pochoda)

“Put down your phone and read The Arrest. It feels as though it was written a hundred years from where we are now, in a new human context, but retrospectively inevitable, by someone with a pen trying to imagine the moment that everything became different. Included in the price, Lethem, with wit and suspense, also gives us a Hollywood novel, a love story, and a teenage gizmo novel about a ride across the country in the coolest atomic car ever. If I say anymore I will say too much.” (Michael Tolkin)
