This was an interesting short reflection on the second-best Talking Heads record, in which Jonathan Lethem does his best Greil Marcus impression (occasionally doing a great job). It’s clear that he was the right fan to write this book, but less clear that the book needed to be written. It inspired me to revisit the music, so I hope he won’t be too offended if I tell you to go get the album instead.
