Book: "Chronic City"

The Manhattan in Chronic City is slightly off kilter.  For example, there's a dense gray fog hovering over lower Manhattan, the New York Times offers a War Free edition, and a tiger (or is it a tunneling earth mover?) is loose in the city causing occasional building collapses.  The book is about friendship, parallel universes, reality, consumerism, and struggling to be authentic when the odds are stacked against you.

My rating:  *** (out of 5)
