review 1: Auster and Coetzee in the course of three years of regular correspondence seem to continue a friendship that was started certainly earlier than 2008. Auster strikes upon the expression "absent other" near the end of the collection -- "a kind of adult cousin to the imaginary frien...

review 1: Paul Auster reminisces about his childhood discovery of the world, back when everything was new to him. He was born only one year before I was, so we share a common era. His memories triggered mostly pleasant ones of my own childhood that hadn't been brought to mind for decades...

review 1: I do not consider Coetzee a writer. He is read, acclaimed and all, yet, he lacks genuinity and heart.The book has just confirmed it, as I was "forced" to read some of his letters (I skipped all, but looked at a few to get a context).it is sad to see a book by Auster 'messed up" b...

review 1: I love letters. I love everything about them: receiving them, reading them, answering them or writing them.So, this book caught my attention right away when I last visited the Bookshop. After all, I've read and enjoyed some of Paul Auster's work. His collaborator, John Coetzee, h...

review 1: آدم‌هایی که زندگی‌های معمولی از سر گذروندن برای نوشتن زندگی‌نامه باید اون رو پیوند بزنن به چیزی که بتونه خلا نبودن اتفاق‌های بزرگ رو پر کنه. مثل کار هوشمندانه‌ی اورهان پاموک که روزگار بی‌ماجرای کودکیش رو چنان آمیخته به شهر استانبول که نمیشه این کودکی رو بی‌استانبول تجسم کرد.اما ک...

review 1: It is always good to have a peep into 60s and 70s, though I have never experienced those times by myself (I'm in twenties). In this memoir the famous novelist Paul Auster frankly divulges his innermost part of the youthful days. As a reader of his novels and essays, I think I cou...

review 1: What a strange and captivating memoir. It can be divided in two parts, really, the first being a brief trip through Auster's earliest memories, a piecemeal and seemingly dreamlike wandering through his early formative impressions, which range from cartoon shows to Nazi Germany. ...

review 1: Auster's second memoir was interesting, if a bit weird. Who writes a memoir in second person? I am sure, knowing the profound nature of his novels, that Auster has a reason, but it was distracting to me. Frankly, the last third was the most interesting. Auster compares writin...

review 1: i don't know about this one. I love, adore, worship about every Auster-project, but with this one, I'm in doubt. A story of a writer's life is always interesting if the writer is interesting, which is the case with Auster, but the feeling that came creeping up on me was: lazyness...

review 1: This book has made me want to read more of Auster's memoirs and stories. The style of this journal is the journal that we all wish we could keep. It is musings on life, random stories and thoughts that pop into his head as the days go by, rather than a day-by-day chronicle of h...
