9780140097054: In the Country of Last Things

'That is how it works in the City. Every time you think you know the answer to a question, you discover that the question makes no sense . . .'

This is the story of Anna Blume and her journey to find her lost brother, William, in the unnamed City. Like the City itself, however, it is a journey that is doomed, and so all that is left is Anna's written account of what happened.

For In the Country of Last Things Paul Auster takes us to an unspecified and devastated world in which the self disappears amidst the horrors that surround it. But this is not just an imaginary, futuristic world, it is a world that echoes our own, and in doing so addresses some of our darker legacies.

Product Description:

From the author of the forthcoming 4 3 2 1: A Novel - a spare, powerful, intensely visionary novel about the bare-bones conditions of survival
In a distant and unsettling future, Anna Blume is on a mission in an unnamed city of chaos and disaster. Its destitute inhabitants scavenge garbage for food and shelter, no industry exists, and an elusive government provides nothing but corruption. Anna wades through the filth to find her long-lost brother, a one-time journalist who may or may not be alive.

New York Times-bestselling author Paul Auster (The New York Trilogy) shows us a disturbing Hobbesian society in this dystopian, post-apocalyptic novel.

Product Description:

A novel set in a futuristic world which chillingly shadows our own. From the author of THE INVENTION OF SOLITUDE.
