Let it be said: I love Lethem's writing. While everything I've read by him is excellent, they have all been very different books.

This one is a surreal heart-breaker, the story of a relationship going slowly down the tubes in the oddest way possible. One the one hand, you feel for the protagonists as they suffer, on the other hand, you're dying to see what bizarre event comes next. Even though virtually nothing happens in the entire book, the pace is fast and the emotions strong.
