Jonathan Lethem on Batman - Art of Darkness - Op-Ed -

Op-Ed Contributor - Art of Darkness - Op-Ed - "“BROKEN pipes, broken tools/People bending broken rules,” sings Bob Dylan in “Everything Is Broken.” The words are set to a guitar riff familiar from the ’60s “Batman” television show starring Adam West, my ur-Batman, cheesy and harmless though he may be. I thought of “Everything Is Broken” when I marked a return to my own Gotham City — Brooklyn, domesticated and oversold as it may be — by seeing “The Dark Knight,” now nestling into place between “Titanic” and “Star Wars” as the second-most-popular film of all time."
