Reviews

"Archly playful and shrewdly philosophical . . . Celebrates the power of the imagination . . . The labyrinthine nature of the mind...[A] tribute to the transcendence of stories." --Donna Seaman, Booklist

"This brief work radiates in so many directions . . . that there must be involved in it some sort of magic or wizardry." --Rain Taxi

"Auster has an enormous talent for creating worlds that are both fantastic and believable. . . . His novels are uniformly difficult to put down, a testament to his storytelling gifts." --Timothy Peters, San Francisco Chronicle

"Auster is one of our most intellectually elegant writers. . . . Themes are hungry ghosts, Borges said. Fortunately, Auster's ghosts are insatiable." --Howard Norman, The Washington Post Book World

"One of America's greats . . . The writing is a tight as ever." --Jonathan Messinger, Time Out Chicago
