Alexander Bruno is a backgammon shark who makes a living traveling the globe trouncing lesser players who have more money than skill. All is well until a run of bad luck in Singapore is followed by the development of a strange occlusion—a “blot”—on his eye that forces him to look at the backgammon board askance (metaphor alert!). Lethem, the author of Motherless Brooklyn and countless other works, is a genre-crossing literary chameleon who has written books in just about all the fictions (crime, literary, science, etc.). In this one he spices his always witty and erudite prose with a dash of the gothic supernatural, creating a strange and riveting story about the games people play and the fate of one man who is learning he may not always win.
