FYI, since this book was a topic of conversation back in the fall. I'm just now reading it and enjoying it a great deal.

Jonathan Lethem wins '99 National Book Critics Circle Book Award for fiction
   By Celia Mcgee

   Rising young New York writer Jonathan Lethem won the 1999 National Book Critics Circle Book Award Monday night for fiction for his Doubleday novel "Motherless Brooklyn."
   The awards ceremony, held in front of a overflow publishing crowd at NYU Law School, bestowed the poetry award on the somewhat more senior, 84-year-old poet Ruth Stone, for "Ordinary Words" from Paris Press.
   General nonfiction went to Jonathan Weiner for "Time, Love, Memory: A Great Biologist and His Quest for the Origins of Behavior," published by Alfred Knopf; the late Jorge Luis Borges' "Selected Nonfictions" brought the criticism prize to Viking; and the biography winner was Henry Wiencek for St. Martin's Press' "The Hairstons: An American Family in Black and White."
