Writer Chuck Klosterman is best known for his essays on pop culture – everything from Val Kilmer to the new Metallica/Lou Reed album. He's just published his second novel, "The Visible Man." It tells the story of a man who is literally invisible. He uses his secret to break into the homes of unsuspecting people and observes them as a fly on the wall without their knowledge. He shares his observations with his therapist who provides his only real human contact in this tale about the isolation of subjectivity.
