The New York Trilogy – Paul Auster

city 2

‘I loved this book so much and it reminded me of this particular card, Escherick House in Philly with its blocks and greenery.
The New York Trilogy is a story of detectives, but nothing like you imagine. People die and there is sex and all that but Auster writes of identity.
That a story can be so much and transcend into so many dimensions was a refreshing learning experience.
‘we all want to be told stories, and we listen to them in the same way we did when we were young. We imagine the real story inside the words, and to do this, we substitute ourselves for the person in the story.’

I cannot wait to read more Paul Auster post my Unread Project.

  1. Ahhh a friend of mine LOVES the New York Trilogy (it’s her “desert island book”) – I’ve been meaning to read it for ages but never got around to it. Thank you for the prompt!
