    DescriptionFrom the bestselling novelist and author of "The Invention of Solitude," a moving and highly personal meditation on the body, time, and language itself""That is where the story begins, in your body, and everything will end in the body as well."Facing his sixty-third winter, internationally acclaimed novelist Paul Auster sits down to write a history of his body and its sensations--both pleasurable and painful. Thirty years after the publication of "The Invention of Solitude," in which he wrote so movingly about fatherhood, Auster gives us a second unconventional memoir in which he writes about his mother's life and death. "Winter Journal" is a highly personal meditation on the body, time, and memory, by one of our most intellectually elegant writers.

    Review quote
    "Celebrated author Auster ("Sunset Park") observes his own life in this engaging memoir... Auster presents a fascinating take on the memoir. Students and fans will appreciate his original examination of his interior self." -" Library Journal "(Starred)"An incandescent memoir. . . . Contemplative, pugnacious and achingly tender. . . . A profoundly beautiful book. . ." -- "Washington Post " "This august author's meandering meditation on time, aging, and the eventual death of his mother beguiled many readers with its mix of pungent poetics and humble reminiscence." - "Elle Magazine", Readers' Prize Winner"His concerns will be familiar to many readers, but because he is Paul Auster, he is uniquely able to reflect on them for the rest of us.... Riveting... Writing in the second-person, almost as if talking about someone else or as if speaking with a stranger, Auster, oddly enough, establishes a powerful intimacy with the reader."-- "Haaretz""[A] graceful, moving new memoir... a kaleidoscopic reflection from one of our most important writers as he enters life's winter.... Auster's brilliance is in how he makes his deep love for his subjects palpable.... With "Winter Journal", Auster has given us a remarkable mosaic of his mother and his second wife, the most vital women in his life, while, at the same time, allowing readers to catch glimpses of themselves in the expansive life that's woven together in this stirring memoir." --Alex Lemon, "Dallas Morning News""Each year, when the inevitable hand-wringing begins over the American drought in winning the Nobel Prize for literature, I'm always surprised that more critics don't push Paul Auster.... The recent knock against American literature is that it's 'insular' and 'isolated, ' at least according to one grumpy Nobel Prize judge. As an antidote to those gripes, I'd like to press a few of Mr. Auster's books into more Swedish hands.... Mr. Auster's prose is sharp and the plots are coiled. And best of all,
