Review quote

"'The Brooklyn Follies is Auster at the top of his game, sublimating the graft of writing into supremely effortless prose. His words are slinky and supple; his characters sing off the page.' Alastair Sooke, New Statesman 'No metaphysical writer can make you feel more like you're being read a bedtime tale by a gentle, hangdog uncle... there is still a hint of the magical in the everyday events that he chronicles.' Tom Cox, The Times"
