'One day there is life . . . And then, suddenly, it happens there is death.'So begins Paul Auster's moving and personal meditation on fatherhood, The Invention of Solitude.
The first section, 'Portrait of an Invisible Man', reveals Auster's memories and feelings after the death of his father.
In 'The Book of Memory' the perspective shifts to Auster's role as a father.
The narrator, 'A.', contemplates his separation from his son, his dying grandfather and the solitary nature of writing and story-telling.
With all the keen literary intelligence familiar from The New York Trilogy or Sunset Park, Paul Auster crafts an intensely intimate work from a ground-breaking combination of introspection, meditation and biography.
