Talking Heads & New York Times Book Review

Hold on tight. “This ain’t no party, this ain’t no disco, this ain’t no fooling around.” Jonathan Lethem’s monograph on Talking Heads’ “Fear of Music” isn’t your everyday, step-by-step, track-by-track snapshot of a great record. “This ain’t the Mudd Club, or CBGB, I ain’t got time for that now.” And, most definitely, Lethem’s contribution to Continuum’s “33 1/3” series isn’t a quick spin down memory lane. It’s obsessive, passionate and personal. In short, the name of this new book by Jonathan Lethem is “Fear of Music.”
