Paul Auster's Collected Prose is an essential collection from one of the finest thinkers and stylists in contemporary letters.
The celebrated author of The New York Trilogy, Moon Palace and The Book of Illusions presents here a highly personal collection of essays, prefaces and occasional pieces written for magazines and newspapers.
Ranging in subject from Walter Raleigh to Kafka; Hawthorne to the high-wire artist Philippe Petit; conceptual artist Sophie Calle to Auster's own typewriter; and The World Trade Center catastrophe to his beloved New York City itself, Auster displays all his customary flair, wit and insight.
