We are happy to announce that Jonathan Lethem will be stepping aboard the AOP train. In October, we will release The Blot, an epistolary exchange between him and Laurence A. Rickels that sets the scene for Lethem's upcoming novel A Gambler's Anatomy.

Here is a preliminary statement about the book from Rickels:

"Some time ago, while Jonathan Lethem was in Berlin and his new novel, A Gambler's Anatomy, to be released October 18, was in progress under another title, The Blot, we supplied a conversation for the catalogue to the exhibition Checkpoint California. Lethem's novel triangulates, via Singapore, the bicoastal logic I once pursued in The Case of California. The exchange continued to grow and now that growth will be going public in the fall."

Stay tuned.
