  1. I am alone in the dark One of the evocative existential opening lines And it tells much about what follows August Brill is 72, a Pulitzer Prize winning book critic who is confined to a wheelchair, and mourning the loss of his wife While convalescing, he is living with his divorced daughter and his granddaughter, Katya, who is mourning the horrible death of her boyfriend in Iraq We see the events of the story through Brill s eyes In attempting to overcome a bout of insomnia, and perhaps escape t [...]

  3. The Philippines exports lots of domestic helpers household helpers, nannies, girl Fridays, cleaners, caregivers, etc to overseas Those ladies and men are normally college graduates or finished some units in college Most of them are teachers because their monthly salary here in the Philippines is low and not enough to satisfy that they think they families deserve Most of them find their possible employers from agencies who have contacts abroad, mostly in Hong Kong, Singapore and some countries in [...]

  4. Back when I was an undergraduate in college not that I ever did any graduate work, but I m about to make fun of myself, and making fun of undergraduates is a literary tradition in these parts I got a total boner for structuralism And then post structuralism I was dating Sarah and she was like, Hey, you like this soulless pomo bullshit, you should read this book I just read and didn t like, the New York Trilogy, I was all, sweet, empty soulless pomo bullshit And read it, and didn t really like it [...]

  5. Me da igual que Auster empiece a jugar a las mu ecas rusas en la p gina 3, me da igual que me recuerde a Travels in the Scriptorium, me da igual que sus personajes me recuerden a otros, me da igual que haya tanto escritor suelto en Nueva York, me da absolutamente igual todo, porque una vez m s, Auster me engancha desde la primera p gina y no me deja ir Y estoy tan a gusto dentro de su mundo el otro d a sal a por esta p gina el tema de nuestros autores vivos favoritos bien, yo me ir a de copas co [...]

  6. It is weird that when I see Paul Auster s works included on the list of best novels of all time according to a magazine site, I have the compelling hunch that they are nifty reads Also, when I see his images on Google, his physical aura of literary skills , his deep stare at the camera tends to pierce me as if everything stops moving just like the two of us in a motionless world It is as though staring back at him renders me powerless ,frozen in awe Thereby, I start having been borne upon the id [...]

  7. Fanfare Yes, it is Paul Auster time again ladies and gentlemen Paul I love you Almost as hard to write as it is to say, although technically my fingers are limber and better versed at communication as they are without the subtle patina of sceptical hoar frost which coats my cryogenically chilled cardio vascular chambers As I have previously discussed, my first few dates with Paul were suspicious, sullen affairs where I peered at the pages with an arched eyebrow trying to decided genius or arty [...]

  8. There are some books which I find seem unpromising but quickly catch you up and sweep you along and this is one of them An old man, August Brill, newly widowed and bed ridden owing to a car accident lies unable to sleep as does his daughter, a writer discarded by her husband and his granddaughter, newly bereaved after the violent death of her ex boyfriend In order to pass the bleak, black time of the depths of night he tells himself stories Stories in which he desperately tries to close his mind [...]

  9. I enjoy the tricks in Auster s fiction, even if they are repetitive throughout his oeuvre Though this novel contains none of his usual tricks, Auster seems to explain why he sometimes puts himself into his own works through the words of August Brill, his narrator Brill is telling himself a story, in the dark, because he can t sleep The story is about a man who must kill the person who created him, and why pretend that I am not that person By putting myself into the story, the story becomes real [...]

  10. What it Means to be Too Professional, Too FluentThere is something primitive about Paul Auster This primitiveness is lodged exactly where it should not be, in the fluency and ease of his storytelling As reviewers always say, he is an inexhaustible source of stories, and in this book the stories never stop there s never any danger of slowing down that is fitting because somehow slowing down feels like treacherous thing to do What would happen if one story failed to succeed the last in a seamless [...]

  11. Reminded me of a Borges story I read in a high school Spanish class a grita grande to Se or Marti in which a guy is reading a book about a character coming to murder a man reading a book and the reader looks out his window and sees a man coming exactly as described in the book I just skimmed The Garden of Forking Paths and there s a similar but not exact scenario toward the end of that one Lots of Borges stories involve porous borders between parallel worlds, often also involving spy novel assas [...]

  12. Meh I feel sort of like a fraud reviewing this book when it is the first Auster I have actually read, but whatever I was not so impressed The story within a story, blurring the boundaries between narrator and characters might have felt fresh and exciting back in 1992, but now it just seems cliched and boring I liked the idea of an alternative United States at war with itself instead of Iraq, but when the narrative abandoned this thread, I lost interest Do we really another book with an aging, an [...]

  13. Man in the Dark resembles an entire series of the Twilight Zone compacted neatly into a single episode Auster has become known for spinning small stories within larger ones, but now his inner narratives have inner narratives It all comes to resemble the skin of an onion I ve always wished he d write a book of short fictional pieces, but one only has to look to his body of work for dozens of them Jorge Luis Borges spoke once about the conjunction of a mirror and an encyclopedia, but Paul Auster s [...]

  14. I m not sure what compelled me to pick this up I think the line Themes are hungry ghosts caught my eye Interesting phrase, I thought.I ve never had a real issue with insomnia Sure, there are those tension filled days that carry over and transmute into a jaw clenching, sheet wrasslin , sigh fest But, it doesn t last The pull into oblivion is too strong I do, however, find that I tell myself stories to urge on said oblivion It s an easier escape than reliving the doldrums of the day or making ment [...]

  17. One of the worst books I have read in recent memory I would bet there haven t been five others I have at least attempted this past twelve months that have been worse than this sentimental fluff How a writer as good as Paul Auster could have written something like this let alone have it published is beyond me This book will do nothing but leave a bad mark on his memory and it did not have to be Not everything we write is worth keeping There is something delusional or greedy in the publication of [...]

  18. A novel employing postmodern storytelling devices to illustrate the inadequacy of postmodernism in making sense of the world after 9 11 This was the first Paul Auster novel I had read I gather he is somewhat revered as a postmodern writer who often employs meta fictional devices and multiple narratives in his work I didn t know this at the time, however, and picked up this book at one of those sales of new books that nobody wants I live in a small city in South Africa where people on the whole d [...]

  19. I usually hate writing reviews of the books I read having to give it an out of five stars pontuation is already hard enough but there are some books I really feel the need to talk about.Having bought this book today and Auster being one of my favourite writers, I couldn t wait to go home so I could start reading it.I found myself spending the next hours of my day completely immerse in this story the pages of the book and the hours I sat at the sofa reading it went by incredibly fast and I ended [...]

  21. Auster, Paul MAN IN THE DARK 2008 1 2 I read and collect Auster s books, but this one leaves me non plussed When I got to the end of the book, I thought that I had bought a copy with the last fifty pages missing The plot that he introduces in the beginning of the novel simply disappears, and the alternative plot loosely related to the first appears, but only developed to a point Then, it stops and the book is over The protagonist is August Brill, a 72 year old retired book critic He has trouble [...]
