One thing I didn't put in the summary was that he is offering an interesting deal for the film rights of his most recent novel, 'You Don't Love Me Yet'. The details are on on his website (it's probably good that this link didn't end up in the submission, because I am not sure jonathanlethem.com could survive a solid slashdotting.)
The deal is also mentioned in the Salon.com article, too.
PS. Hat tip to Norm Jenkins for linking the interview on his website.
