Product Details


Praise for The New York Trilogy:
“The plots twist, the dialogue snaps and the humor stings. Auster’s obsessions with identity, language, ambiguity and defeat are revealed on the long, tailing walks through the metropolis that give his labyrinthine novels their switchback shape, and New York looms throughout like a modern-day Babel.”
The New York Times Magazine 

“Eminently readable and mysterious. . .Auster has added some new dimensions to modern literature, and – more importantly even – to our perspectives on our planet.”
– Fanny Howe, The Boston Globe
“Exhilarating. . .a brilliant investigation of the storyteller’s art guided by a writer who’s never satisfied with just the facts.”
The Philadelphia Inquirer
“It’s as if Kafka had gotten hooked on the gumshoe game and penned his own ever-spiraling version.” The Washington Post
“Auster harnesses the inquiring spirit any reader brings to a mystery, redirecting it from the grubby search for a wrongdoer to the more rarified search for self.”
The New York Times Book Review
