    Set against the backdrop of the contested US election of 2000, The Brooklyn Follies tells the story of Nathan and Tom, an uncle and nephew double-act. One in remission from lung cancer, divorced, and estranged from his only daughter, the other hiding away from his once promising academic career, and life in general. Having accidentally ended up in the same Brooklyn neighborhood, they discover a community teeming with life and passion. When Lucy, the little girl who refuses to speak, comes into their lives, there is suddenly a bridge from their pasts that offers them the possibility of redemption in a world that resembles more a crucible of broken dreams & of human folly than 'a quiet place to die.'

    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.

    A moving and personal meditation on fatherhood. In the first of two sections, 'Portrait of an Invisible Man,' Auster reveals his memories and feelings after the death of his father, a distant, undemonstrative, almost cold man. As he attends to his father's business affairs and sifts through his effects, Auster uncovers a sixty-year-old family murder mystery that sheds light on his father's elusive character. In the subsequent section, 'The Book of Memory,' the perspective shifts from Auster's identity as son to that of father. Through a mosaic of images, coincidences, & associations, the narrator 'A,' contemplates separation from his son, his dying grandfather, & the solitude of creativity. 172p.

All the entries are dated, but the notebooks cannot be construed as a traditional diary, since there are scarcely any personal remakrs in it. These fragments, short thoughts, aphorisms additively compose a modern sensibility, 'sacrificing results to the discovery of their condition.' Joubert strategically reminds us, 'Never write anything that does not give you great pleasure. 160p.
