Jonathan Lethem and the other authors behind the newest Brooklyn book of wonder, Brooklyn Was Mine, have banded together in a valiant, selfless pledge. They will donate the book's proceeds to Develop Don't Destroy Brooklyn, the group opposing Forest City Ratner's Atlantic Yards Project. Huh! Anyway, the book is brought to you by Vogue authors Valerie Steiker and Chris Knutsen, and contributers include Jonathan Lethem, Darcey Steinke, and Jennifer Egan. They've all written for no pay in the hopes that big changes will be made. Clearly they are anticipating big sales if the royalties on a marginal literary anthology are going to make a dent on a $4 billion project!
