Review quote

Praise for The New York Trilogy:   “Eminently readable and mysterious. . .Auster has added some new dimensions to modern literature, and – more importantly even – to our perspectives on our planet.” – Fanny Howe, The Boston Globe   “Exhilarating. . .a brilliant investigation of the storyteller’s art guided by a writer who’s never satisfied with just the facts.” – The Philadelphia Inquirer   “It’s as if Kafka had gotten hooked on the gumshoe game and penned his own ever-spiraling version.” – The Washington Post   “Auster harnesses the inquiring spirit any reader brings to a mystery, redirecting it from the grubby search for a wrongdoer to the more rarified search for self.” – The New York Times Book Review  show more
