Reviews

Our pre-eminent novelist of ideas.
A literary original who is perfecting a genre of his own.
Auster has added some new dimensions to modern literature and--more importantly even--to our perspectives on the planet.
The Red Notebook stories, pulled from Auster's own life or from the lives of those close to him, are explorations of unexpected coincidences. A wrong number becomes the genesis for a famous novel; a hero appears at an inopportune moment; a lightning storm harries a group of campers; a daughter plunges from a terrifying height only to land improbably safely; a Paul Auster imposter materializes. Like a magic show, The Red Notebook demonstrates that "there is much to life that is special and serendipitous -- if only we allow ourselves to perceive it this way."
Paul Auster is definitely a genius.--Haruki Murakami
