    Coming upon this 'chronicle of early failure,' readers of translator, poet, screenwriter, and novelist Auster (Mr. Vertigo, LJ 6/15/94) may be charmed by his new publisher's presentation though left puzzled by the derivative offerings. The work consists of one original, down-beat essay, 'Hand to Mouth,' a flat record of Auster's inauspicious early years struggling to make money while writing (the essay was recently excerpted in Granta), and three appendixes: a medley of Beckett-inspired plays, an 'action baseball' card game that Auster was convinced would make his fortune, and a Chandleresque detective novel, 'Squeeze Play'?all of which failed in one way or another when first created. Auster's collection of essays and reviews, The Art of Hunger (Sun & Moon, 1991), develop more fully and satisfactorily the author's literary development, while the appendixes here will interest few but devoted literary archivists.

  • The Collected Writings of Joe Brainard (The Library of America)

    • Published: March 2012
    In New York’s vibrant art and poetry scenes of the 1960s and 70s, Joe Brainard occupied a special place. An artist of diverse and extraordinary gifts, he worked prolifically in a dazzling range of media, creating cover designs and interior art for some of the most significant books of the period and experimenting with the mixing of poetry and comic strips. The publication in 1970 of his one-of-a-kind autobiographical work I Remember showed that Brainard was also a writer of originality, grace, depth, and distinctive humor. The book has become a contemporary classic. Here in one volume is the full range of Joe Brainard’s writing in all its deadpan wit, effortless inventiveness, personal candor, and generosity of spirit: the complete text of I Remember, along with an unprecedented gathering of intimate journals, stories, poems, travel diaries, one-liners, comic strips, and mini-essays, and short plays, many of them until now available only in expensive rare editions. Assembled by the author’s longtime friend and biographer Ron Padgett and presenting for the first time fourteen previously unpublished works, this consummate volume provides long overdue recognition of a singular literary talent and a terrific person. Interviews, Chronology, Notes on the Texts, Glossary of Names. Illus. 544p.

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.
