Man in the Dark

By Paul Auster

Our Price: $7.50
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.

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.

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.

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.
