Review:

Praise for Music of Chance:
A tour de force about freedom and imprisonment, motion and stasis, order and randomness. . .its story beautifully paced and shaped, its tone powerfully ominous.
The Wall Street Journal
You won t read much better writing anywhere on the lure of the open road and it catches the reader in a surprisingly strong spell. It s further evidence that Auster is one of the few contemporary American novelists whose work is both original and interesting."
The Washington Post
Entertaining, provocative, and resonant. . .Auster can write with the speed and skill of a self-assured pool player, sending one bizarre event ricocheting neatly and unexpectedly into the next.
The New York Times"
