Was given this today by my good friend Carl in Book Boyz.

I will save for later reading.

Book Boyz is an excellent independent bookshop in Farnborough in Hampshire. It is also a BookCrossing zone.

Journal Entry 2 by keithpp from Farnborough, Hampshire United Kingdom on Monday, August 6, 2007
I had never heard of Paul Auster until a friend gave me a copy of The New York Trilogy to read.

Three stories set in New York, set around the 'it's a dark and stormy night', only in this case, it was the telephone that rang late at night.

Three stories: 'City of Glass', 'Ghosts', 'The Locked Room'.

Three short stories, 'City of Glass' more a novella than a short story.

William Wilson is a crime writer invented by Quinn. His fictional detective Max Work.

Late one night Quinn gets a telephone call. It is a wrong number. What they want is the detective Paul Auster of the Auster Detective Agency. But Paul Auster is the author of our trilogy? Weird!

Surreal. Echoes of Franz Kafka, Edgar Allan Poe, Herman Hesse, George Orwell.
