City of Glass

By Paul Auster

Our Price: $16.00
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.

The first section, 'Portrait of an Invisible Man,' reveals Auster's memories & feelings after the death of his father, a distant, undemonstrative, almost cold man. As he attends to his father's business affairs & sifts through his effects, Auster uncovers a 60-year-old family murder mystery that sheds light on his father's elusive character. In 'The Book of Memory,' the perspective shifts from Auster's identity as son to his role as father. Through a mosaic of images, coincidences, & associations, the narrator, 'A,' contemplates his separation from his son, his dying grandfather, & the solitary nature of writing.
