    First published in 1985, 'City of Glass' stands as the first installment of Paul Auster's New York Trilogy. Here, it has been brilliantly transformed into a graphic novel that loses none of the nuance of the original. It even gains in effect, due to the collaborative imaginative effort that brings it successfully to this format: 'Machine-like, fitful, alternating between slow and rapid gestures, rigid and yet expressive, as if the operation were out of control, strict, not quite corresponding to the will that lay behind it.' Black-and-white illustration throughout. 144p.

    Volume One of 'The New York Trilogy.' As a result of a strange phone call in the middle of the night, Quinn, a writer of detective stories, becomes enmeshed in a case more puzzling than any he might have imagined. Written to the hilt with hallucinatory clarity, the book combines dark humor with a twist of Hitchcockian humor, and was classified The Washington Post Book World as 'post-existentialist private eye.' 'The City of Glass' was nominated for an Edgar Award for Best Mystery of the Year. 203p.

    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.
