Reviews

From the spook of 'Spokes' and the parabolic philosophical chiaroscuro of 'White Spaces' to the gnomic sighs of what's in between, Paul Auster's poems shimmer at the edges with audacious grace and uncanny soulfulness.--Charles Bernstein
Anyone interested in the origins of Paul Auster's art, its ground, will find these intense early sequences, these liminal austerities, of great interest. Auster's is a poetry of extreme lyric condensation.--Michael Palmer
