The Book of Illusions - new book

2011, ISBN: 9780571276639

ID: 692132604

The Book of Illusions, written with breath-taking urgency and precision, plunges the reader into a universe in which the comic and the tragic, the real and the imagined, and the violent and the tender dissolve into one another. One man´s obsession with the mysterious life of a silent film star takes him on a journey into a shadow-world of lies, illusions, and unexpected love. After losing his wife and young sons in a plane crash, Vermont professor David Zimmer spends his waking hours mired in grief. Then, watching television one night, he stumbles upon a lost film by silent comedian Hector Mann, and remembers how to laugh . . .Mann was a comic genius, in trademark white suit and fluttering black moustache. But one morning in 1929 he walked out of his house and was never heard from again. Zimmer´s obsession with Mann drives him to publish a study of his work; whereupon he receives a letter postmarked New Mexico, supposedly written by Mann´s wife, and inviting him to visit the great Mann himself. Can Hector Mann be alive? Zimmer cannot decide - until a strange woman appears on his doorstep and makes the decision for him, changing his life forever.´A nearly flawless work . . . Auster will be remembered as one of the great writers of our time.´ San Francisco Chronicle ´Auster´s elegant, finely calibrated The Book of Illusions is a haunting feat of intellectual gamesmanship.´ TheNew York Times The Book of Illusions is one of Paul Auster´s greatest novels, now in a stunning new look.
