Oracle Night

By Paul Auster

Our Price: $7.50
The discovery of a mysterious notebook turns a man's life upside down. The author's mesmerizing eleventh novel is at once a meditation on the nature of time and a journey through the labyrinth of one man's imagination. The book's central figure, Sidney Orr, is a 34-year-old novelist several months into his recovery from a near-fatal illness, who, on September 18, 1982, enters a stationery shop in the Cobble Hill section of Brooklyn and purchases a blue notebook. For the next nine days Orr will live under the spell of this blank book. Other events occur in uncanny fashion, making his life more a matter of passage through the haunted realms of everyday existence. 243p.

The original edition first published in 1999 , was the first important book by Calle to be published in English. This new edition, published to coincide with the 2007 Venice Biennale (Calle will represent France), is identical in content to the first and reprises all of the cherished qualities of it in a more compact, hardcover format - including the signature ribbon around its middle. The story begins with Maria, a character in Auster's novel, 'Leviathan.' Double Games' first section takes readers through the few original works by Maria that Calle makes her own...& by the third section, Auster is taking Calle as his subject, and for her, invents the Gotham Handbook.

Evoking parallels with Beckett's 'Murphy' and 'Molloy,' Paul Auster's equally absurd Mr. Blank awakens without memory, sitting in front of the relics on his desk. So begins a labyrinthine novel that follows Blank's journey through the investigation of a mysterious manuscript whose vague characters & settings frustratingly hint at Blank's identity & past. Written by a man named Sigmund Graf, of his attempts to track down a solider named Ernesto Land, the manuscript mirrors Blank's own captivity and offers larger implications of identity and personal meaning - not so different from our own. This British edition of 'Travels in the Scriptorium' is sheer, vintage Auster.
