"Following the huge success of The Brooklyn Follies, Paul Auster offers a novel that is a dark puzzle: a game implicating both reader and writer, and an ingenious exploration of language and time.

An old man sits in a room, with a single door and window, a bed, a desk and a chair. Each day he awakes with no memory, unsure of whether or not he is locked in the room. Then a middle-aged woman called Anna enters and talks of pills and treatment, but also of love and promises. Who is this 'Mr Blank', and what is his fate? What does Anna represent from his past - and will he have enough time to ever make sense of the clues that arise?" (from back cover)

Faber and Faber paperback, 2007. 130 pages. (1st printing 2006.)

Interesting and not at all what I expected. The book follows the main character, Mr Blank as he tries to figure out who he is, who the people around him are and what happened during his life.

Hello lovely reader,

If you're choosing wild release, think of places where people stop and take a moment. Some examples are, tourists spots, statues, restaurants, cafes, train stations and free libraries. Don't forget you can add a journal entry before releasing.
