Winter Journal (2011)

I can think of hundreds of journals that could touch me deeply,yet Auster's winter journal is something of a quite emotional chaos.By referring to chaos,I mean a real deep and human condition of a soul and not just a typical record.Some could claim that it is without order(chronological or logica...

LOVE THIS BOOK. I will re-read it next winter and then write a review. Enjoyable read written in a very unusual way. The description of the car crash is astonishing.

Nice in style, with some sentences to reread and quote. Memoir of Auster's life, written when he was 64, captures his childhood (even before he can remember), his women, his parents, travels and (21) homes he lived in.Written completely in second person, making it more interesting, it is part phi...

The New York Trilogy (2006)

ثلاثية نيويورك قرأت هذه الثلاثية قبل سنوات، وخربشت وقتها بعض الأفكار حولها، ولكن لأنني لم أكن حينها مهتم بنشر مراجعاتي للكتب، فبقيت هذه الأفكار في حالة غير مكتملة في ملف نصي مهمل، فلذا أعتذر مقدماً عن الحالة الغريبة التي قد تبدو بها هذه المراجعة، اعتبروها مراجعة معتقة نوعاً ما. صدر الجزء الأو...
The Brooklyn Follies (2006)
3.79 of 5 Votes: 2
One of the numerous minor characters that flit in and out of The Brooklyn Follies is one James Joyce -- not the writer, but a Foley walker, a person who makes sound effects for movies. His job isn't all aural pyrotechnics, though: he is described as working on minutia, such as "turning the page o...
Moon Palace (1990)
3.99 of 5 Votes: 5
I read Moon Palace about four months ago. I really wanted to write something about it, even though its trace is no longer as fresh in my mind as it was then. This text is not a review. The book is wonderful, possibly the best Auster novel out of the three I’ve read (the other being The New York T...
Timbuktu (2000)

I once read this novel by Paul Auster, perhaps 5 years ago.It was highly recommended by a great poet friend which to me has become part of the story because the recommendation felt like it was an inculcation to a mystical spell without which I would wander restlessly through eternity like I never...
The Invention of Solitude (2007)
3.83 of 5 Votes: 2
I don't think I would have finished this had I not read Auster's 'Winter Journal', his second 'memoir', written 30 years after 'The Invention of Solitude'. 'The Invention of Solitude' is divided into two sections, "Portrait of an Invisible Man' and 'The Book of Memory'. The first one deals with t...

The Book of Illusions (2003)

I'm fighting myself between giving this a 3 1/2 or a 4 star rating. I had never heard of Paul Auster before when I happened to run across this book in my local book store. I was intrigued by the title and the synopsis on the back of the book seemed curious. It sat on my shelf for a little while a...

Mr. Vertigo (1997)

I read this book for class. No, I'm not going to follow that with an 'and thus I hated it', so if that's your type of thing, shoo. I won't deny that some of those mandated readings during those readers of yore were a total slog, but that was more if not wholly due to extenuating circumstances of ...

As I was writing the last words of the first paragraph in the second section printed above (“living on his small planet like some latter-day Little Prince”), I was reminded of the fact that The Little Prince was written in New York. Few people know this, but after Saint-Exupéry was demobilized fo...

Unlike you, I do have a sister, but she is nearly four years younger than I am, and the thought of going down that road with her never once crossed my mind. On the other hand, when I was eighteen or nineteen, I dreamed one night that I was making love to my mother. The dream baffled me then and c...

One by one they disappear and never come back. I can tell you of the ones I have seen, of the ones that are no more, but I doubt there will be time. It is all happening too fast now, and I cannot keep up. I don’t expect you to understand. You have seen none of this, and even if you tried, you cou...
