    Recovering from a car crash in his daughter's home in Vermont, 72-year-old August Brill is unable to sleep, lying in bed, telling himself stories, struggling to push away thoughts about things he'd prefer not to dwell on. Instead of reflecting on his wife's recent passing and the death of his daughter's boyfriend in Iraq, Brill creates a vivid alternate reality of an America frought with civil strife. Brill's dream world is so vivid and dark that a soldier from this world is sent on a mission to assassinate Brill to bring an end to the dream, and thus the war. This post-modern reflection on the relationship between fantasy and reality also deals with war and grief. 180p.

VG/VG. THE SET: Paul Auster's New York Trilogy deftly combines elements of postmodernism with the devices of detective genre fiction, like an odd but beautiful love-child of Samuel Beckett and Raymond Chandler. Dappled with ambiguity and nearly absurd at points (Paul Auster himself makes an appearance), the Trilogy somehow manages to tackle complex issues of the reliability of words and their associations, while remaining a compelling narrative. This set contains first editions of all three books: City of Glass, Ghosts, and The Locked Room.

    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 and settings frustratingly hint at Blank's identity and 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 poignant allegory is sheer, vintage Auster.
