Bestselling author Jonathan Lethem returns with A Gambler's Anatomy, a devilishly entertaining novel about an international backgammon hustler who’s convinced he’s psychic—or is it just a brain tumor? Bruno Alexander has traveled the world winning fortune and fame with his mysterious, even uncanny talent. But when a dark blot begins to distort his vision, he must return to California for the experimental surgery that might save his life. Amidst the pseudo-radical chaos of the Berkeley scene and a succession of femme fatales and scheming false friends, Bruno must come to terms with the fact that his luck may have finally run out.

Jonathan Lethem is the New York Times bestselling author of nine novels, including Dissident Gardens, The Fortress of Solitude, and Motherless Brooklyn; three short story collections; and two essay collections, including The Ecstasy of Influence, which was a National Book Critics Circle Award finalist. A recipient of the MacArthur Fellowship and winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award for Fiction, Lethem’s work has appeared in The New Yorker, Harper’s Magazine, Rolling Stone, Esquire, and The New York Times, among other publications.
