Review:

Praise for The New York Trilogy:
"Eminently readable and mysterious. . .Auster has added some new dimensions to modern literature, and - more importantly even - to our perspectives on our planet."
- Fanny Howe, The Boston Globe
"Exhilarating. . .a brilliant investigation of the storyteller's art guided by a writer who's never satisfied with just the facts."
- The Philadelphia Inquirer
"It's as if Kafka had gotten hooked on the gumshoe game and penned his own ever-spiraling version." - The Washington Post
"Auster harnesses the inquiring spirit any reader brings to a mystery, redirecting it from the grubby search for a wrongdoer to the more rarified search for self."
- The New York Times Book Review
