    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.
