    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.

    • Publisher: Henry Holt and Company
    • Published: 2007
    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.
