The Invention of Solitude - new book

ID: 104390006

´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. The Invention of Solitude is Paul Auster´s very personal meditation on fatherhood.

Title:

The Invention of Solitude

ISBN:

Invention of Solitude A moving and personal meditation on fatherhood. It reveals the author's memories and feelings after the death of his father. It also includes a section 'The Book of Memory' wherein the perspective shifts to the author's role as a father. Full description, Beginning with the deconstructed detective novels of the New York Trilogy, Paul Auster has proved himself to be one of the most adventurous writers in contemporary fiction. In book after book, he seems compelled to reinvent his style from scratch. Yet he always returns to certain preoccupations--most notably, solitude and coincidence--and these themes get a powerful workout in this early memoir. In the first half, "Portrait of an Invisible Man," Auster comes to terms with the death of his father, and as he investigates this elusive figure, he makes a rather shocking (and enlightening) discovery about his family's history. The second half, "The Book of Memory," finds the author on more abstract ground, toying with the entwined metaphors of coincidence, translation, solitude, and language. But here, too, the autobiographical element gives an extra kick to Auster's prose and keeps him from sliding off into armchair aesthetics. An eloquent, mesmerizing book.
