about

From Paul Auster, author of the forthcoming 4 3 2 1:  A novel – his debut work of fiction, the first volume in his acclaimed “New York Trilogy” series of novels

Nominated for an Edgar Award for Best Mystery of the Year, City of Glass inaugurates the intriguing New York Trilogy of novels that the Washington Post Book World has classified as "post-existentialist private eye...It's as if Kafka has gotten hooked on the gumshoe game and penned his own ever-spiraling version." As a result of a strange phone call in the middle of the night, Quinn, a writer of detective fiction and crime books, becomes enmeshed in a case more puzzling than any he might have written. New York Times-bestselling author Paul Auster combines dark humor with Hitchcock-like suspense to City of Glass.

From Our Editors

A mystery writer assumes a detective's identity and embarks on a bizzare case: he must protect a man from his criminally insane father, and as he follows the elusive criminal, he embarks on a mission that takes him to the depths of his own soul. Auster's In the Country of Last Things is being published this month by Viking

Editorial Reviews

“Remarkable. . .the book is a pleasure to read, full of suspense and action. . .[A] strange and powerful adventure in Paul Auster’s art.” – The New York Times Book Review   “Exhilarating. . .A brilliant investigation of the storyteller’s art, guided by a writer-detective who’s never satisfied with just the facts.” – The Philadelphia Inquirer   “A wondrous whodunit for metaphysicians, an intricate detective story and many-layered romance.” – Russell Banks
