    ZIONist !?

  8. I just finished reading “Oracle Night”, a book that kept me up all night, couldn’t put it down. “Sunset Park” I absolutely? loved reading, “Invisible” comes very close. You always feel Auster’s love for his protagonists, a great sense of humanism. He doesn’t put others down just to show how smarter he is, there is no false irony. – And he doesn’t only show, what’s wrong with people, he’s not afraid to show also how you should act. He won’t moralize, he just shows, so you can see by yourself.

    I have read both Moon Palace and In the Country of Last? Things. They were amazing. Now I am reading Sunset Park and I just bought Invisible!

  10. MegaMalelover says:

  14. funktrane says:

    Very sexy voice.?

  15. Neonectria says:

    “… clarity, finally, is the most unsettling thing possible. It allows the readers in some sense, if you can do it well, ideally, to forget that the medium of expression is language. That you are just somehow in what the words are saying but you are not even thinking about the words anymore…”

    Un de? mes auteurs préférés et ce depuis la lecture (il y a 20 ans déjà… ça file!) de sa Trilogie new-yorkaise.

  16. tristessa56079 says:

    Easily? my favourite modern author.

  17. toolesttool says:

    So is this guy suggesting at the end? that he tries to “forget” the language? Hmmmm…

  18. What a great interview….I read “Man in the Dark” recently and? really enjoyed it, as well as a really old one of his..”Moon Palace” which I could not put down. He clearly enjoys everything about being a writer, and is great at his craft. Cannot believe he used #2 pencils on paper….incredible.

  19. AnimalVirulent says:

    lol?

  20. AnimalVirulent says:

    This author is? really magic.

  21. licianinh says:

    Hard to put down, “Invisible” has three interesting stories going at the same time. Paul Auster blurs the lines between truth and imagination. I enjoyed the book? enough that once I started reading I couldn’t stop. Started one day, finished the next.

  22. violistarevirtuoso says:

    Invisible is what of the greatest novels I´ve ever? read. I´m so glad Paul Auster made it.

  23. Bjarnesen92 says:

    I love the voice. Simply the? voice is so fantastic.

  24. naomisad says:

    This author is a great……a living? legend..a class act…i adore his work!
