Product Details


“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
