Blundering Blindly in the Corridors of Imagination: An Interview with Paul Auster

Forget everything you think you know about Paul Auster, as with the release of his New York Trilogy manuscripts, the award-winning author talks typewriters, telephones, and why he doesn't think of himself as a novelist.

Winter of Slight Discontent: Paul Auster's 'Winter Journal'

Winter Journal is a meandering, plotless memoir about the ordinariness of life. Nevertheless, it's a commanding read, even if there are some rather pretentious moves and in-roads taken.

With the series coda to Geoff Johns' six-year run on Green Lantern just completed, the once bright Silver Age hero's adventures leave a bitter taste, more because of magical promise of Johns' early work.

Man in the Dark by Paul Auster

This superb small novel isn’t about war or politics at all, but about, in the face of guilt and horror, choosing whether to die and how, if that is the choice, to live.

Reviews

The Inner Life of Martin Frost

A dark, slippery love story, a meditation on the risks of embracing one’s muse, a study of the author and his/her “creation”, a quiet reflection on the nature of “human understanding”, this film is many things at once.

The Brooklyn Follies by Paul Auster

Reading this novel is like watching Auster trying his best to remake his beloved city out of sand castles on Coney Island instead of the shattered fragments of the World Trade Center.

Reviews

Oracle Night by Paul Auster

It provokes such interrogation in a way that other novels don't, as if we can legitimately expect so much more from a writer who consistently delivers less, and who has made the theme of 'lessness' his own defining quality.
