J. Robert Lennon is today's guest. He is the author of several books, and his latest novel, Familiar, is now available from Graywolf Press.
The New York Times Book Review raves
“Over the last decade, J. Robert Lennon’s literary imagination has grown increasingly morbid, convoluted and peculiar—just as his books have grown commensurately more surprising, rigorous and fun.”
And The Los Angeles Times says
"[Lennon} keeps Familiar balanced at a perfect pitch...a literary puzzle, a marvelous trick of the mind."
