Reviews

"As Auster's many admirers know, his narrative voice is as hypnotic as that of the Ancient Mariner. Start one of his books and by page two you cannot choose but hear." --Michael Dirda, The New York Review of Books

"Compulsively readable yet wonderfully complex and unsettling. The book is both a babushka doll of stories within stories and a literary Rubik's Cube, the solution of which, if there is one, is the very nature of reality." --The Boston Globe

"Auster shines as a fabulist and tale-teller, putting a high-modernist gloss on noir." --The New Yorker

"A joy to read." --The Economist

"It's urban mysticism, a poetry of the hidden and the almost forgotten, with the supernatural power deriving equally from the city and the novelist's imagination. . . . A snow globe of a novel." --New York magazine

"Oracle Night is a triumph for novelist Auster. It cements his growing reputation as one of America's most inventive and original writers." --The Seattle Times
