Book review: You Don’t Love Me Yet by Jonathan Lethem

This is my first go at the work of Jonathan Lethem, and I'm glad I gave it a shot (thanks OCPL).

Lethem is primarily an essayist, and as such, he has a nice, smooth way with words.

Lucinda is a 20-something who plays bass in an L.A.-based band. She recently quit her job as a barrista and is now working for her capital-A Artist ex-boyfriend, answering phones on a complaint line. She falls in lust with a complainer, who winds up joining the band, fronted by another ex of hers.

There are some interesting characters, and some very L.A. situations.

It's a quick, fluffy read. Definitely enjoyable, definitely summer, and I almost feel like I need to read some non-fiction to make up for my indulgence, but we'll see what the library has around lunch time on Monday.
