Jonathan Lethem on the glamorous life of a writer.

Ever since his excellent novel Motherless Brooklyn, I've read pretty much everything Jonathan Lethem has written. He has a new book out called The Ecstasy of Influence, and in it, Lethem shares the difficulties of going on book tours.

He points out that the crazy schedules often leave no time for grumpy busting. As he puts it, when you hear writers on the radio, "they are holding in a bowel movement."

Good to know!
