PROJECTalphabet presents C is for CHRONIC CITY, the much-anticipated
new alphabet book inspired by and celebrating Jonathan Lethem’s Chronic City.

It didn’t seem fair that Jonathan Lethem's toddler son not be able to read his father’s eighth novel, Chronic City (Doubleday, $27.95). Cunniffe thought the book needed an alphabet (what doesn't?)—a drug-free edition. Hijacked with his blessings, “C for Chronic sounds insane and great…Please do this!!” Lethem e-mailed. Because really, what kid wouldn’t want to learn to read with a boy from Indiana and a three-legged pitbull?
