The Brooklyn Follies

Производитель: "Faber and Faber"

`I was looking for a quiet place to die. Someone recommended Brooklyn, and so the next morning I travelled down there from Westchester to scope out the terrain`... So begins Paul Auster`s remarkable new novel, The Brooklyn Follies. Set against the backdrop of the contested US election of 2000, it tells the story of Nathan and Tom, an uncle and nephew double-act. One in remission from lung cancer, divorced, and estranged from his only daughter, the other hiding away from his once-promising academic career, and, indeed, from life in general. Having accidentally ended up in the same Brooklyn neighbourhood, they discover a community teeming with life and passion. When Lucy, a little girl who refuses to speak, comes into their lives, there is suddenly a bridge from their pasts that offers them the possibility of redemption.

Auster, Paul

▪ American author
in full  Paul Benjamin Auster 
born Feb. 3, 1947, Newark, N.J., U.S.

      American novelist, essayist, translator, and poet whose complex mystery novels are often concerned with the search for identity and personal meaning.

      After graduating from Columbia University (M.A., 1970), Auster moved to France, where he began translating the works of French writers and publishing his own work in American journals. He gained renown for a series of experimental detective stories published collectively as The New York Trilogy (1987). It comprises City of Glass (1985), about a crime novelist who becomes entangled in a mystery that causes him to assume various identities; Ghosts (1986), about a private eye known as Blue who is investigating a man named Black for a client named White; and The Locked Room (1986), the story of an author who, while researching the life of a missing writer for a biography, gradually assumes the identity of that writer.

      Other books that feature protagonists who are obsessed with chronicling someone else's life are the novels Moon Palace (1989) and Leviathan (1992). The Invention of Solitude (1982) is both a memoir about the death of his father and a meditation on the act of writing. Auster's other writings include the verse volumes Unearth (1974) and Wall Writing (1976), the essay collections White Spaces (1980) and The Art of Hunger (1982), and the novels The Music of Chance (1990), Mr. Vertigo (1994), The Book of Illusions (2002), Travels in the Scriptorium (2007), and Man in the Dark (2008). He wrote screenplays for numerous films, including Smoke (1995), and he wrote and directed the films Lulu on the Bridge (1998) and The Inner Life of Martin Frost (2007).
