Praise for Music of Chance:

“A tour de force about freedom and imprisonment, motion and stasis, order and randomness. . .its story beautifully paced and shaped, its tone powerfully ominous.” 
–The Wall Street Journal
“You won’t read much better writing anywhere on the lure of the open road – and it catches the reader in a surprisingly strong spell.  It’s further evidence that Auster is one of the few contemporary American novelists whose work is both original and interesting.”
The Washington Post
“Entertaining, provocative, and resonant. . .Auster can write with the speed and skill of a self-assured pool player, sending one bizarre event ricocheting neatly and unexpectedly into the next.”
The New York Times
